With great sadness, we announce the passing of our colleague, Shoggy Waryn. After an extended illness, he died at home, surrounded by a group of close friends, on February 18, 2014.
Words are wholly inadequate to express the depth of our loss. Shoggy was a generous and energetic colleague and a dynamic and innovative pedagogue, who made enormous and lasting contributions to our Department, Brown-in-France, the Providence French Film Festival, our library's French film collection, and language learning at Brown and beyond. We will remember his sharp wit and boisterous laughter, without which Rochambeau House will not be the same. >>more information
