John Urry, co-director of the Institute for Social Futures, longstanding colleague and an influential scholar who has shaped several fields of sociology, died suddenly, 18th March.
His vision for the ISF is one we shall continue to honour in our varied outputs and research. He will be greatly missed, not only for his knowledge and work but also his generosity, warmth and kindness. The future will not be the same without him. However, his legacy lives on.
