Obituary Dr. Agustín Seguí

With the passing of Dr. Agustín Seguí, Saarland University, and particularly the field of translation theory and practice, mourns the loss of one of its founding figures. Dr. Seguí played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Spanish Department within the former Translation Institute and served as its director for many years. His unwavering commitment to innovation, he never avoided conflict, often spurred progress and change. Dr. Seguí's impact extended far beyond teaching and administration; he was a passionate researcher with a broad spectrum of interests. His work spanned individual questions of the Spanish language, the phenomena of translation studies, and the field of Latin American modern literature and ethnological studies of indigenous peoples in Latin America.  He will not be forgotten by us any time soon.
