In Memoriam — Jerry Bentley (1949–2012)

Posted by UH Press Marketing on 17 July 2012

Professor, editor, and author Jerry Bentley passed away on July 15 in Honolulu.

Bentley taught early modern European and world history at the University of Hawai‘i. While his early research centered on the religious and political writings of the Renaissance, he became one of the most cited experts in global history and the processes of cross-cultural interaction in particular. He was the founding editor of the Journal of World History and co-editor of the series Perspectives on the Global Past. In 2002 he became the director of the Center for World History at UH. Most recently, Bentley was a guest professor at the Global History Center, Capital Normal University, in Beijing.
