Romit Dasgupta 1964–2018

I am extremely sad to report that our dear friend and colleague Associate Professor Romit Dasgupta passed away suddenly this week. Romit taught and researched at the University of Western Australia for many years, where he was a much-loved teacher, supervisor and mentor. Romit undertook pioneering research in gender and sexuality studies, including his monograph Re-Reading the Salaryman in Japan: Crafting Masculinities (Routledge 2012). He will be laid to rest at a memorial service in Perth, Western Australia on Monday 9 July. Condolences to his family and friends.
