05 Jan Announcement: The passing of Professor Mario Rutten
With great sadness we announce the passing of professor Mario Rutten on December 26, 2015. Mario was the chair of KITLV’s wetenschapscommissie (Scientific Committee) from 2006 to 2012 and continued as a member of the committee since. His contribution was of great significance to the KITLV during these years, which included an eventful period of reorganization and transition of the institute. We will dearly miss his critical insights, his commitment and common sense, and above all his warm personality.
For further information on Mario’s life and work, we refer to the announcement by Mario’s Department of Department of Anthropology and the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research at the University of Amsterdam.
