Jean Laponce

Our colleague and friend Jean Laponce left us on November 28, 2016. A professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of British Columbia from 1956, he also taught at Aichi Shukutoku University in Japan from 1994 to 1997 and at the University of Ottawa from 1992 to 2002. Jean Laponce was interested in numerous areas of political science, but he made his mark in the field of linguistic politics, thanks to such remarkable works as Langue et territoire (1990) and Loi de Babel et autres régularités du rapport entre langue et politique (2006) published by Laval University Press. Jean Laponce was also very active within the profession, serving as president of the Canadian Political Science Association from 1972 to 1973. He was the first and only Canadian to become President of the International Political Science Association. In addition to editing the International Political Science Review, he founded Research Committee 50 on Language and Politics. Political science has just lost a great man. Jean Laponce was always a colleague committed to the life of the mind, academic freedom and international dialogue. Our condolences to his family and friends.
