Harold Schiffman (in memoriam)

Submitted by Joyce Parvi on

Sadly, Asian Languages and Literatures (AL&L) Professor Emeritus Harold Schiffman, also adjunct in Linguistics and Anthropology, passed away recently. A brief remembrance of his life and academic contributions has been written by Michael Shapiro (former chair of AL&L, adjunct in Linguistics, and Divisional Dean of the Humanities).  Schiffman’s autobiography is also posted at the University of Pennsylvania, where Schiffman moved in 1995 to accept an appointment as Professor of Dravidian Linguistics and Culture.
