Prof John A. Richardson (1956 - 2018)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing away of John Alexander Richardson on 16 November 2018. He began as Teaching Fellow in the Department of English Language & Literature in 1985 and taught until 1987. Thereafter, he was Lecturer until 1990. After a short stint back in the United Kingdom, he rejoined as Lecturer and was promoted to Senior Lecturer, in which capacity he served until 1994. He once again left the department and joined back as Assistant Professor in 2003. In 2004, he was promoted to Associate Professor, and in 2009, he became full Professor. He was Head of Department on two separate tenures. John Richardson has a long history with the department and a lasting place in our memories.
May he rest in peace.
