The ASA Family Section Distinguished Career Award.
This award recognizes the collective body of a person’s work as it relates to
the sociology of the family (not a single publication). Award winners may be
selected on the basis of distinguished contributions to either research or
service. Service to the field includes developments (such as data sets or
analytic techniques) that have had a substantial impact on family research.
Please send letters of nomination and the nominee’s CV to Kei Nomaguchi
(knomagu@BGSU.edu) no later than March 15, 2019.

nomination is January 31, 2018. The books may arrive shortly thereafter.

The ASA Family Section Outstanding Graduate Student Paper Award.
Graduate students are invited to submit an article-length paper on the family.
The paper should represent a finished product rather than a proposal for
future work. The submission can be based on a course paper, a recently
published journal article, a manuscript under review at a journal, or a
conference presentation. Co-authored papers are acceptable if all authors are
students, although the prize will be shared. The paper must have been
written when the author was enrolled in a graduate program. The paper may
not exceed 30 pages or 11,000 words. Please send an electronic copy of the
paper by March 15, 2018 to Sharon Sassler (Sharon.Sassler@cornell.edu).
