Tributes to Lauren Berlant
I had the privilege to work with Lauren Berlant at the Press. To give a sense of how hard and how much they worked, I once received a very erudite reader report that ended mid-sentence. A few minutes later I got the other half with an apology — they were on the elliptical!

RIP to an utterly amazing scholar; when I first arrived at U Chicago for a post-doc I thought: everyone will be like Lauren Berlant. Reader: no one was like Lauren Berlant. https://t.co/GA9JRAzMwa

Terrible news to wake up to: Lauren Berlant has died. She was a formative part of my and many others' intellectual lives and an engaged and spirited interlocutor. And she saw through a lot of bullshit. RIP.

I have never encountered anyone like Lauren Berlant. Anyone whose thought was as supple and capable of standing up to reality without lying about it, or cutting it short. A legend of the actual. I am so sad to see her go, and so sad for her many many friends. https://t.co/ItpTD42BrY
