Professor F.K. Lehman (F. K. L. U Chit Hlaing), renowned anthropologist and Asia scholar, wide-ranging expert on Burma and its peoples, passed away several days ago. He was professor emeritus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Lehman is being widely remembered and there are surely obituaries to come. A memorial website was set up at the Center for Burma Studies which he helped found, at Northern Illinois University. It can be found via, or directly here:   

Gene Cooper, China anthropologist and beloved mentor, passes at 68

It is with immense sadness that we break the news of loss: Professor Eugene Cooper passed away last weekend from an infection likely related to a recently diagnosed illness. Professor Cooper was a specialist in temple fairs and craft production. We share a short video of Professor Cooper discussing his latest research on temples fairs to convey something of the spirit that has just left this world -- the effervescence with which he explains effervescence is his trademark.
