In Memoriam: Peter Kaufman

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our longtime blogger, Peter Kaufman. We are fortunate to have an archive of 105 posts that Peter wrote for this blog on a variety of topics, often focusing on issues of inequality and social justice.

A longer tribute post will be coming soon; in the meantime, we can all pay tribute to Peter by sharing his work with others, and for those of us who teach, share his ideas with students for years to come.

Let us know: which of Peter's posts is most meaningful to you? Instructors, which posts have you used in class, and how do you recommend others use his work in our future classes?

He will be missed. Thank you for letting us know about the sad departure of this wise man.

Professor Peter Kaufman will be sadly missed. His contribution to SOCIOLOGY and knowledge has immense value, that cannot be forgotten. Rest in Peace.

I really loved his last blog "The Sociology of My Death"... I thought it was so interesting and brave of him to write. I'm so sad that he passed away, but I look forward to going through all of his posts to learn more about his ideas through his writing.
