The Department of Geography and Urban Studies at Temple University is greatly saddened by the sudden death of our friend and colleague, Professor Ben Kohl. Ben died last week in Philadelphia of an apparent heart attack. Many of you know Ben through his contributions to Latin American studies, international development, and urban studies across the disciplines of Planning, Geography, Anthropology, Politics, and Sociology. Ben was a phenomenal teacher, colleague, mentor, and friend. He cared deeply about students and was extremely supportive of junior faculty. Ben’s commitment to social justice permeated all aspects of his life and it is difficult to imagine the department without him. Read full story.
