It is with great sadness that the Departments of Comparative Thought and Literature, Anthropology, and Philosophy announce the passing of Professor Stanley Cavell, who has been a major influence on the scholarship and teaching of faculty and students at Johns Hopkins. In April 2011, a daylong conference took place in his honor and presence on the occasion of the publication of his autobiography, Little Did I Know. His enormous generosity, thinking, and writings have inspired numerous co-taught seminars and jointly organized workshops, papers and dissertations, and will remain a lasting legacy for the Hopkins community to profit from.
