[xmca] FW: Dell Hymes has passed away
Dear CAE Colleagues,
Last Friday, November 13, the field and the world lost one of our giants
when Dell Hymes passed away. I¹m sure there will be more on arrangements
and reflections on his incredible body work over the next days and weeks. I
wanted to let you know that there will be a memorial event in his honor at
the AAA Meeting on Saturday, December 5, 2009, from 7:30-9 pm in the Grand
Ballroom III at the Courtyard Marriott.
Dell Hymes was especially important to our organization and to the
anthropology of education. I welcome your thoughts on ways in which we in
CAE can best honor him and his life¹s work.
With best regards,
Teresa L. McCarty, Ph.D.
