Dear colleagues,

It is with great sadness that I write to let you know about the passing of our previous Chancellor’s postdoc fellow, Angela Tapia Arce at her home in New York. As those of you who got to work with her last year know well, Angela was an amazingly generous person, scholar, artist, and activist and her work with Quechuan women and their textile traditions was incredible. Angela joined us after her PhD at UT Austin, and had accepted a position at Vassar College next year.

We express our deepest condolences to Angela's family and friends.
