Renowned scholar and friend, Yale-NUS Professor Bernard Bate has passed away

March 14, 2016

The Department of Anthropology sadly announces the death of Barney Bate, a dear friend and invaluable colleague. Strength and generosity of spirit permeated his work and presence in our department. Now the sense of professional loss we felt when he departed for Yale’s sister school in Singapore has become deeply personal. We join his family, along with the many students and colleagues who were lucky enough to know him, in mourning this huge loss.
