I am very sorry to inform you that Dr. Tim Carmichael, Associate Professor of History and Director of African Studies, has died.
As some of you know, Tim had stage 4, terminal pancreatic cancer. His death was the result of multiple organ failure, following septic shock. Tim’s spouse and colleague, Dr. Noelle Zeiner-Carmichael, Professor of Classics, was with Tim at the end.

The international conference “Maqdala at 150” will take place during four days, from April 10 to April 13, 2018, in parallel to the historical events that, 150 years earlier, led to the fall of Maqdala and the death of Tewodros II. The conference will be organized by Gondar University on its campus in partnership with three other universities: Debre Tabor University, Amba Maqdala University (to be opened yet) and Bahir Dar University.
In April 2018 the 150th anniversary of the fall of Amba Maqdala and the tragic death of Emperor Tewodros II of Ethiopia will be celebrated. The fate of Maqdala in 1868 was one of the defining chapters in the history of modern Ethiopia and in the wider world it became an icon of African utopia and tragedy under colonialism.
