In Memoriam: Judith Laffan (July 23, 2014)

The Department and Program of Near Eastern Studies mourns the passing of our friend and colleague, Dr. Judith Laffan. Judy was a valued member of the Arabic Language instructional team since September 2011. 

Judy completed her Ph.D. at University of Queensland in July, 2011, and shortly after began teaching Arabic with us. She will be greatly missed by her colleagues, her students, and the many, many friends she made here at Princeton.

In lieu of flowers, the Laffan family requests that donations be made to the Melanoma Research Fund – Abramson Cancer Center. Checks are to be made out to “Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania”  and may be designated to Judy’s memory.
