Julia Harvey

‘To our great sadness, our colleague

Dr Julia Harvey

was not able to win the fight against her illness, despite her zest for life and her optimism.

Julia was a kind-hearted, engaged and enthusiastic colleague. With her expertise, she put the University Translation and Correction Service on the map.

We will miss her enormously.

We send our empathy to Jaap and to Julia’s family and friends. We wish them much strength in bearing this loss.

The colleagues of the Language Centre,
Faculty of Arts, University of Groningen’
