Professor Andrew Manning
We are saddened to report the untimely passing in late December of SIR Professor Andrew Manning. Andrew earned both his BA and PhD in SIR, and had been teaching courses on peace and conflict resolution, terrorism and democracy, and various other foreign-policy topics since 2002. His dissertation analyzed emotions in foreign policy decision-making, and political psychology was a core focus that he brought to his teaching.
Those who knew Andrew also knew of his special interest in Irish history and the Northern Ireland peace process—and that he’d recently been designing a new course on “Famine and Genocide in International Relations.” Andrew earlier directed the SIR Peace and Conflict Studies Program, and was also founding adviser to Trojans United for Peace and Conflict Resolution. A caring teacher and conscientious adviser, Andrew had a devoted following among SIR students.
