Jim Rosenau Has Died

Jim was a GWU colleague, although I only knew him very slightly – by the time that I came here, he had begun to wind down his teaching and research. From our limited acquaintance, he struck me as a kind and congenial colleague. He played a major role in early key debates over international relations, and retained an interest in the increasingly complex world that globalization was producing. I will link to obituaries as I see them.

    This is very sad news. I knew Jim since the time he was the external advisor on my PhD dissertation, which then became the book Parchment, Printing, and Hypermedia. He and I also traveled to China together for a series of lectures in 2000. I visited him many times in Washington DC. He was a great supporter of my research and other activities. A great loss.

    The world has lost a great man, who understood the importance of inspiring generations of students of international relations. In Brazil, Jim taught many of us about how to reconcile intellectual discipline with moral integrity. We’ll miss him.
