A Fond Farewell

On June 30, Professor Roniger will officially retire as the Reynolds Professor of Latin American and Latinx Studies with a joint appointment in the Department of Politics and International Affairs. Professors retire but intellectuals do not. As he enters the season of retirement Roniger is committed to continuing his pace of scholarly contributions (after, he acknowledges a brief break to “rest for a while, enjoy family, and continue maintaining an active life agenda”). “It is my vision that we academics have been privileged to do what we love and that, accordingly, we owe a debt of gratitude and should contribute to humanity while instilling a profound respect for human rights and diversity. That means we should contribute to human knowledge to the best of our ability. Accomplishing that goal gives me a rewarding feeling of having had a well lived life.”
