Sociology of Family Call for Award Nominees Statement
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, analytic techniques, or highly-cited scholarly publications) that have had a substantial impact on family research. Send a one-page justification with your nomination. The nominee’s CV is helpful but not necessary. The deadline is March 2, 2013. Please send nominations to Christine Schwartz (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Please send copies of the nomination letters to each member of the committee as well as arrange with your publisher for the publisher to send a copy of the book directly to all members of the committee. The deadline to receive the letter of nomination is January 11, 2013. The books may arrive shortly thereafter.

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. Please send the paper by March 2, 2013 to Annette Lareau (email@example.com).
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 2010, 2011, or 2012. Nominations may be made by the author or others. To nominate an article, please send a letter of nomination (not to exceed one page) that details the contribution of the article to the field of family sociology, as well as an electronic copy of the article, to the chair of the award committee, Kristen Schultz Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for nominations is March 2, 2013.
