John Urry (1946-2016) – announcement at the Lancaster Sociology website

3817Very sad news about John Urry, who died on Friday. Announcement at the Lancaster Sociology website.

Perhaps best known for The Tourist Gaze, the book of his that had most impact on me was Economies of Signs and Spaces, written with Scott Lash. His work on mobility, climate change and social theory is enormously influential.
