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 (no longer than one page) and the nominee’s CV to Jessica Halliday Hardie (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 13, 2021.
The ASA Family Section William J. Goode Book Award
This award is for a book published on the family in 2019 or 2020. The committee will consider only books nominated by section members and we encourage self-nominations. Textbooks and edited volumes are not eligible. Please send an email notification of your nomination to Kelly Raley (email@example.com) no later than January 31, 2021 and request the mailing addresses for the members of the committee. Arrange for the publisher to send copies of the books directly to the committee chair and all members (6 copies total), which may arrive shortly thereafter.
The ASA Family Section Article of the Year Award
This award recognizes a journal article that has made a significant contribution to the field of family sociology. The award committee will accept nominations for articles published in 2018, 2019, or 2020. Nominations may be made by the author or others. To nominate, please send an electronic copy of the article to the chair of the award committee, Sarah Halpern-Meekin (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for nominations is March 13, 2021.
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 13, 2021 to Christine Schwartz (email@example.com).
