As many of you will have heard, Doreen died on Friday 11 March. This is very sad, sudden and shocking news. All of you, we’re sure, will join with us in conveying our thoughts and sympathy to Doreen’s family.
Doreen was a true intellectual force in Geography and the wider academic community not just in Britain but across the globe, as you are all too aware. Her loss will be felt by us as a Department, for we had the privilege of knowing her personally, and by the University, to which she was truly and wholly committed. Doreen’s passing will also be a profound loss to all those who were inspired by her work, which was always stimulating, not least because it was sharpened by her keen sense political purpose and commitment.
