Amal Kabesh Cause of Death – It’s with sadness that we have to announce the passing of Amal Kabesh, who died this week aged 67. Amal was a brilliant feminist and postcolonial scholar whose work spanned many decades: she worked tirelessly to transform knowledge from a psycho-social perspective deeply committed to questions of experience and inequality.
Amal was a long-standing friend and advocate for Gender Studies at LSE, giving papers over the years on masculinity and Egypt, affect, psychoanalysis and intellectual life. As one colleague noted, when she spoke she held the room transfixed by her care and attention. And another recalled the poetry that she brought to her academic labour. Her acclaimed books: Postcolonial Masculinities: Emotions, Histories and Ethics and Egyptian Revolutions: Conflict, Repetition and Identification opened up new directions in postcolonial feminist scholarship.
Family, friends, colleagues and loved ones are devastated and shattered at the completely unexpected passing of Amal Kabesh.
It is with great sadness we collectively remember and pay tribute to the life and work of Dr. Amal Kabesh, who died this week aged 67. Amal was a brilliant feminist and postcolonial scholar whose work spanned many decades.https://t.co/MfnhVT8Lf3
