Condolences - Dr. Mahmoud Ellozy

November 15, 2021

Dear AUC Community,

It is with great sadness that I share the news of the death of professor emeritus Dr. Mahmoud Ellozy, who passed away last night in his home. The funeral took place earlier today.

Condolences may be sent to his spouse Sawsasn Mardini via email or phone 0122-1006018.

Ellozy retired from AUC in 2020, after spending over 30 years as a member of the AUC faculty, first in the Department of Comparative English Literature, and more recently in the Department of the Arts. Following his retirement, AUC conferred upon El Lozy the status of Professor Emeritus. This is a reflection of his long-standing service and contributions to AUC, and was based on the unanimous endorsement of the Department of Arts, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences Council and the Provost's Council. 

Ellozy was both an educator and an artist. He was a playwright, actor and director who appeared on stage, television and film, performing and directing both English and Arabic productions.

I extend my deepest condolences to Ellozy's family, as well as to his colleagues and students across AUC. His loss will be felt by our community and across the Egyptian arts world.
