Annette Karmiloff-Smith

In memoriam

Sadly, Annette Karmiloff-Smith died on 19th December, 2016, at the age of 78. Annette was a key member of the DNL, offering inspiration, guidance, and support since our inception. Many of her theoretical ideas underpin our research, and her sense of curiosity and fun will remain our guiding light. We will miss her greatly.

Fred, with Mark Johnson, recently edited a volume of Annette’s selected papers, which she chose shortly before she died.
