Thinking with Nasser Hussain (1965-2015)
Conference Nov. 4 & 5, 2016
In November of 2015, the Department of Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought lost a dear friend and colleague Nasser Hussain to a long illness. Nasser taught in LJST from the time that he arrived at Amherst College in 1996. His death was an immeasurable loss for all who were fortunate enough to know or study with him. He was a deeply committed teacher and a brilliant leader in the study of law and colonialism. On November 4 – 5, 2016 in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry, Frost Library, Amherst College, a number of leading scholars will present original work reflecting upon Nasser’s scholarly contributions. Papers are available on request from Adam Sitze (firstname.lastname@example.org); attendees are encouraged to read them in advance. Please join us for this tribute.
The LJST Department is saddened to announce the tragic news that Nasser Hussain, who taught LJST since his arrival at Amherst in 1996, passed away Nov. 9, 2015. Nasser's death, after a long illness, represents an immeasurable loss for all who were fortunate to know or study with him. He was a deeply committed teacher and a brilliant leader in the study of law and colonialism. Nasser also was caring and kind and, in all he did, offered a shining example of human decency. We will miss him deeply.
