Date: 15-Jun-2005
From: Stefan Ploch <plochlinguistics.wits.ac.za>
Subject: Sad passing of Dr Puleng Hanong, Wits

It is with the profoundest regret that we inform you that Dr Puleng
Hanong, Senior Lecturer in Linguistics, University of the
Witwatersrand (Johannesburg) passed away unexpectedly on 8 June 2005.

Dr Hanong was a respected academic, devoted teacher and supervisor,
and well-loved colleague. She did her academic training at the
National University of Lesotho, the University of Edinburgh and the
University of Liverpool where she completed a PhD in Applied
Linguistics in 1997. She was a Rhodes Research Fellow at Oxford
University before joining Wits in 2002. Dr Hanong was internationally
recognized for her work in Critical Discourse Analysis. Her analyses
focused on representations of Lesotho in the media, on courtroom
discourse, and on gender relations within the legal system.

There will be a memorial service in the Seminar Room of the South-West
Engineering Building, Main Campus (East), University of the
Witwatersrand, Jorrison Street or Empire Road, Johannesburg, South
Africa, Wednesday, 22 June 2005, 1pm.
