Disability in Society Award Nominations Calls
Sociology of Disability and Society Outstanding Publication Award
The Outstanding Publication in the Sociology of Disability Award is given in alternating years, either for 1) the best journal article or chapter in an edited volume authored or co-authored by a Section member that has made (or is likely to make) an impact on the sociology of disability in the preceding two years; or for 2) the best published book authored or co-authored by a Section member that has made (or is likely to make) an impact on the sociology of disability in the preceding two years. For this year, we will make an award for the best journal article or chapter in an edited volume, published during 2017, 2018 or the beginning of 2019. Individuals can be nominated by colleagues or self-nominated, with selection made by a panel of the Section’s awards committee. The selection panel could, in unusual circumstances, make multiple awards. To nominate or self-nominate for the 2019 award for best published article or book chapter, please send a letter of nomination and an accessible electronic version of the article to the Awards Committee Chair, Val Leiter, at email@example.com by no later than March 1, 2019.
