Former SAI-Colleague Prof. Kenneth McPherson (1944-2010)
The following news on the death of Professor Kenneth McPherson (1944-2010) we distribute with great regret. Prof. McPherson was a member of the Thyssen project
on 'Governing the Indian Ocean' conducted by the department for Political Sciences South Asia (Prof. Subrata Mitra) at the SAI. Subsequently due to successful application at DFG Prof. McPherson came to SAI as a Mercator professor -
the first one of its kind, in the political science of South Asia. Prof. McPherson was actively involved with teaching, published in the Heidelberg
Papers. He was a dear friend to many colleagues in the house, who will miss him
greately. For a longer article see South Asia Masala.
