We are deeply saddened to report that our colleague, Isabelle Clark-Decès, died Thursday, June 29, 2017 in northern India. Professor Clark-Decès died after falling in the village of Mussoorie, where she was leading a Princeton Institute of International and Regional Studies Global Seminar, "At Home (And Abroad) in the Indian Himalayas." Professor Clark-Decès joined the faculty in 1996 and has directed the program in South Asian Studies since 2007. Her passion for her fieldwork and interlocutors in India was unrivaled, and Isabelle imparted this love on her students. Isabelle has left us an extraordinary body of research on religion and kinship in South Asia. She also leaves behind an international network of South Asian scholars whom she generously hosted and mentored over the years. We will greatly miss her as a teacher, scholar, colleague and friend.
