1962 – 13 August 2016

Elaine Rosa Salo trained in anthropology at UCT in the early 1980s. She completed her PhD at Emory, examining gendered roles in Mannenberg, Cape Town. She was part of UCT's African Gender Institute from 2000 to 2008, before leaving to become director of Women and Gender Studies at the University of Pretoria. She became associate professor in political science and international relations at the University of Delaware in 2014. An outspoken feminist scholar, public intellectual and generous mentor, she will be sorely missed. Rest in power.
