Dr. Patricia Ann Weitsman, Professor of Political Science and Director of War and Peace Studies at Ohio University, died on March 30 after a long and difficult illness.  She was 49.  In 2009, she was elected Vice Chair and Chair Elect of the International Security Studies Section of the International Studies Association. She served as Chair of ISSS from 2011-2013.  During her tenure, the section became the largest in ISA. While Chair, she proposed and developed a new journal on international security studies.  The new journal was approved by the ISA Governing Council at the Annual Convention last month in Toronto. When the journal's first edition is published next spring, it will be dedicated to its founder and champion.
