The Institute of English Studies is saddened to learn of the sudden death of Senior Research Fellow Professor Iain Stevenson. Iain was a professor in the Department of Information Studies at UCL. He was a Senior Research Fellow at IES, and was for many years the inter-collegiate examiner for the MA/MRes in the History of the Book. He taught ‘History of the British Book Trade, 1890-2010’ on the 2015 London Rare Books School, and he was scheduled to teach the course again this summer.
UCL has collected tributes to Professor Stevenson and posted them here.
Our condolences to his friends and family.
