ABU-LUGHOD--Janet Lippman. It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Janet Lippman Abu-Lughod on December 14, 2013, at the age of 85 in New York City. Dr. Abu-Lughod joined the Graduate Faculty of The New School for Social Research during the 1986-87 and served as Professor of Sociology for 12 years. A renowned urban sociologist, she published ground-breaking works about Cairo and Rabat, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. She will be missed by countless colleagues, former students, and readers. A memorial for Dr. Abu-Lughod will be held at The New School in early 2014. David E. Van Zandt, President The New School William Milberg, Dean The New School for Social Research
