Nancy Munn — remembered as “a scholar’s scholar” — was an Emerita Professor of Anthropology at the University of Chicago and a renowned expert on the commingling of space and time. Munn passed away on January 20, 2020. A memorial will be held Monday, April 24. A key figure in the development of symbolic anthropology, she was among the first scholars to bring phenomenology to bear on anthropological analysis, according to an obituary published in American Anthropologist.
