Dear Colleagues and Students
It was with a great sense of
loss when we heard of Professor Farzad Sharifian’s death. He was chair in
cultural linguistics at Monash University, Australia, and served as the editor
of Culture- and EIL-related series published by leading international
publishers such as Springer Nature, Routledge, and John Benjamins. He founded
and took on the role of editor of International Journal of Language and
Culture (John Benjamins).
community was very stunned to hear this news and still cannot believe that it
really happened. Professor Sharifian was not only a renowned researcher but also
a theoretician of cultural linguistics. Many postgraduate students look upon him as a role model and many staff members
appreciated his international status.
Farzad will always remain
within our hearts. May God bless him.
