Obituary for Terence Ranger

A brief announcement from the British Zimbabwe Society was distributed via H-Africa on January 4, 2015:

Terry Ranger passed away in his sleep last night in his home at Oxford. Marieke was asked by Shelagh to send the news around. May he rest in Light and peace. There is so much to say but let this simple information suffice for now.”

Several African news agencies including The ZimbabweanNehanda Radio and New Zimbabwe published obituaries online on the 4th and 5th. Professor Ranger’s impact on African history and historiography was the focus of Diana Jeater‘s 2009 interview with him for the History Workshop Journal in 2009 with the transcript published July 16, 2011 as “Terence Ranger: Life as Historiography.”
