Sad News: David Sánchez, AAR Committee Chair

April 9, 2019

We were greatly saddened to learn that David Sánchez, associate professor of theological studies at Loyola Marymount University and current AAR committee chair, died suddenly this past weekend.

We will miss this extraordinary man, world citizen, scholar, father, and friend. We are thankful for his many years of service to the AAR, including as member and chair of our Status of Racial and Ethnic Minorities in the Profession Committee, book review editor for JAAR, and member of the Professional Conduct Task Force and multiple Program Units.

Timothy Law Synder, president of LMU, has issued a touching remembrance of Sánchez, as has the student newspaper of LMU. Vigil and service details are available to view here.

Our deepest condolences to his family, colleagues, and friends.

Alice Hunt

AAR Executive Director
