It is our sad duty to announce that Prof. Tracey Lie-dan Lu passed away on 21 March 2016 in Melbourne, Australia.  Tracey, as a member of the Dept. of Anthropology at CUHK for more than fifteen years,  was a wonderful colleague, scholar and teacher, playing a preeminent role through her scholarship in the archaeology of Hong Kong and of China; she wrote dozens of pivotal articles and a number of important books on archaeology and on museum studies. She was a prominent member of the archaeological community in Hong Kong and in China. She was also a deeply beloved teacher, winning exemplary teaching awards, and was revered by generations of students, especially the undergraduate students she taught and the postgraduate students she mentored.   She is very sorely missed by all of us. 

Go in peace, Tracey!


Best wishes,

Department of Anthropology
