So sad to hear of the passing of David William Foster. He was the kindest, humblest, and most prolific scholar I have known… I remember reading his work as a grad student and thinking: “This is someone to emulate”…

RIP Professor David William Foster
I’m very sad to hear about the passing of my Ph.D. Director and academic advisor, a true mentor, colleague, supporter, and colleague. I am grateful for the way he helped me cultivate an independent mind as a researcher.

Sad news. I had the pleasure of introducing David William Foster when he spoke
@ChapmanU a few years ago (invited by Alicia Kozameh). I talked about what a trailblazer he was in Latin American queer studies and how much he had influenced my own work. Smart and wonderful person.

It has been my good fortune to have had more than my share of remarkable professors, and we just lost one of them. I remember that Foster was kind enough to let me take his final late, after a 16-hr restaurant shift caused me to sleep through my alarm.
David William Foster, an appreciation
