A Great Heart Stopped: Erik Olin Wright (1947-2019)

A Great Heart Stopped: Erik Olin Wright (1947-2019)

Masoud Movahed

I first met Erik Olin Wright when I arrived in the University of Wisconsin-Madison as a Ph.D. student in the summer of 2016. Having already read most of his work I could not wait to meet him in person. Indeed, the chance to study under Wright was the main reason for my being there.

A Zinn-like combination of a brilliant mind and a big heart. He deserves a place in the
same all-star pantheon.
