In Loving Memory of  Professor Farzad Sharifian

(21 March 1964-12 May 2020)

Research in English Language Pedagogy (RELP) regrets, with the deepest sorrow, to inform the loss of the prominent member of its Editorial Board, Professor Farzad Sharifian. As the founding father of cultural linguistics, Professor Sharifian had an extensive, revolutionary impact on modern linguistics. He will be remembered as a wholly decent, wonderful gentleman, an inspiring mentor, and a genuine teacher as well as for his prodigious intellect, incredible academic contributions, and captivating presentations. He will, indeed, be missed by the language community. RELP expresses its cordial sympathy to his family, friends, and colleagues. His life has passed but the incredible wealth of his wisdom will thrive in all those who were strongly touched by his work for generations to come. May God bless his soul!
