Dr. Lorraine Lim: A gifted and inspirational educator and scholar

It is with deep sadness that we have to announce that Dr. Lorraine Lim, Lecturer in Arts Management, passed away recently, following complications from cancer.

Lorraine was a gifted and inspirational educator and scholar, whose commitment to, and innovations in, teaching will be a huge loss to both her colleagues and students. Her research into cultural policies and institutions (particularly in East Asia), and more recently into the changing social networks of arts and creative workers, was gaining currency and achieved international repute, before her final illness cruelly cut short her potential.

Over and above her professional achievements and intellectual commitment to her discipline, she was a treasured friend and valued colleague to the many people she touched during her short life. Her death has created a profound absence in the life of our department, and we all miss her terribly.
