We encourage you to nominate your colleagues, mentors, or students to recognize their scholarly contributions to sociology of families. Self-nominations are also welcome. Please note that all nominees must be registered members of the ASA to be considered for section awards.
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 the nominee’s CV to Jennifer Hook (email@example.com) by March 10, 2023. A short letter of nomination (no longer than one page) is optional but encouraged.
William J. Goode Book Award
This award is for a book on the family published in 2021 or 2022. 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 Robert Crosnoe (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than January 13, 2023 and request the mailing addresses for the members of committee. Arrange for the publisher to send copies of the books directly to the committee chair and all members (6 copies total).
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 2020, 2021, or 2022. 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, Rebecca Glauber (Rebecca.Glauber@unh.edu). The deadline for nominations is March 10, 2023.
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 to Kei Nomaguchi (email@example.com) by March 10, 2023.
