The department is mourning the loss of our friend, colleague, mentor and teacher Lee Ann Fujii who passed away unexpectedly on Friday March 2, 2018. Associate Professor Fujii was a vibrant and much-loved member of our community. Associate Chair and a highly respected scholar of political violence, ethnicity and race, African politics and field methods, she spent 2016 -17 as a Fellow at the Institute for Advance Studies in Princeton, NJ where she was working on a new book on public violence. More information will be posted here as we receive it.

In the meantime, a book of condolences is available in the Political Science main office (Davis 3125) for students, staff, faculty, or community members who wish to pay tribute.
