Sad news about Professor Peter Fensham

It is with great sadness that I write to share the news that our dear friend and generous colleague Peter Fensham has passed away. At this stage, we do not have any further details to share, but we will do so as they become available.  As the founder of ASERA, Peter was instrumental in creating and sustaining the association as a rich and collegial space to share research, foster connections, and assist many of us to establish our careers.

Below is an article about Peter written by Dick Gunstone for a Special Issue of Cultural Studies of Science Education that shares so many wonderful memories of Peter and his work. He will be so dearly missed by us all.
