Marxist Sociology Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes distinguished career achievement in Marxist sociology. Nominators should send all committee members an email letter stating the case for the nominee winning the award and attach a copy of the nominee’s vitae. Although the award is for a body of work of sociological importance, neither the nominator nor the nominee need to be members of the Marxist Sociology section or of the American Sociological Association. The deadline for nominations is March 15. The chair in 2013 is Kevin Anderson (email@example.com).
Albert Szymanski-T.R. Young-Critical Sociology Marxist Sociology Graduate Student Paper Award
The Marxist Section of the ASA and Critical Sociology announce the Albert Szymanski-T.R. Young Marxist Sociology Graduate Student Paper Award. This award is presented to the author of the best graduate student paper in Marxist sociology. The competition is open to both published and unpublished article-length papers (roughly 25 pages in length without tables or references) written by a graduate student in the last few years (2010-2012). The committee will accept sole-authored and multiple-authored papers as long as the applicant is lead or senior author. No student-faculty collaborations can be accepted. The committee will select the paper that demonstrates the most thoughtful, competent, or innovative analysis of a theoretical, empirical, or activist issue(s) that is germane to Marxism, Marxist Sociology, and Marxist Praxis. The prize for the winner will be $500 ($250 from the Marxist Sociology section of the ASA and $250 from Critical Sociology, which jointly underwrites the award). The deadline for submissions is March 15. All submissions must be received electronically. All papers and questions should be sent to the chair of the committee. The chair in 2013 is Matt Vidal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
