We are sad to record the death of Professor Ian Donaldson (1935 – 2020), the founding Director of CRASSH. Ian Donaldson came to Cambridge in 1995 from the Regius Chair of Rhetoric and English Literature in the University of Edinburgh, having previously been Director of the Humanities Research Centre of the Australian National University. He led CRASSH from 2001 to 2003. Obituary from the Australian Academy of the Humanities.
