 height= The South Asia Institute is united in grief of Prof. Dr. Klaus-Peter Köpping, who died unexpectedly in Berlin on 17 June 2017 at the age of 77. After several guest professorships in Aachen and Mainz, Köpping held a professorship in Ethnology at Heidelberg University from 1991 to 2005.
Prior to the founding of the Institute of Ethnology, in which he was decisively involved, Prof. Köpping worked at the South Asia Institute from 1991-1996. After his retirement, he lived in Berlin and worked as a guest professor at Goldsmith College in London until 2007.

Heidelberg University loses with Prof. Dr. Klaus-Peter Köpping a highly respected scholar, original researcher and inspiring teacher. He has shaped the Institute for Ethnology in Heidelberg and has gained a great reputation, especially through the successful interdisciplinary networking.
