On Sunday, April 19, the Department of Sociology held a memorial service for Daryl Carr, a beloved member of the sociology community who passed away in February.
Daryl received his BA in Political Science from Roger Williams University in 2007 and taught English as a Peace Corp volunteer in Jordan for two years before graduating with an MA in Middle Eastern studies from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013. He joined Boston University as a PhD Candidate in the fall of 2013, and was expected to receive his doctorate in sociology in 2017.
Remembered by faculty and students as an exceptionally bright and humble individual, Daryl’s interests focused on issues of national identity, state formation and citizenship laws in the Middle East, specifically Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Daryl passed away in February, 2015. His warmth, compassion and gentle sense of humor are deeply missed.
Collections of letters and notes to the Carr family were collected at the service, as well as photographs of Daryl for a memorial book.
