Obituary: Roy D’Andrade, UCONN Emeritus Professor of Anthropology

Roy D’Andrade, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at UCONN passed away on October 20, 2016 at the age of 85. Dr. D’Andrade was a cultural anthropologist and a founder of cognitive anthropology. According to his obituary published on the website of the American Anthropological Association, Dr. D’Andrade was a prolific scholar and “a leading contributor to formal analysis of terminological systems but later recognized that these analyses were inadequate to represent cultural understandings, paving the way for the richer studies of meanings in cultural models analysis.” Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
