Gyászhír / In memoriam – Jack Roberts

April 17, 2012    

It is with deep sorrow and regret for us to have found out about the sudden, unbelievable death of Jack (aka Jon) Roberts. It is also especially devastating for us because he was a truly great person, colleague and friend. Jon was Professor of English at Saint Thomas Aquinas College in NY State and a Fulbright Lecturer in American Studies at the University of Szeged for 2002/2003. He taught courses in classical and contemporary American fiction as well as pragmatism and poetics. He continued to return to Szeged to lecture on literature and terrorism and has served as an examiner on several Ph.D.s.

His memory will remain with us, in the Institute’s classrooms, at the cafes and on the streets of Szeged, the city he loved so much.
