ASA is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 Community Action Research Initiative (CARI) grant awards. These sociologists bring social science knowledge, methods, and expertise to address community-identified issues and concerns. Each CARI recipient has proposed pro bono work partnering with a community organization. The three principal investigators are listed below, along with a brief description of their funded proposals.

We all have a lot on the line when we give professional presentations. We want to convey our research in ways that contribute to our areas, make connections with other scholars, and perhaps put ourselves on the radar of a few senior scholars in our discipline.

The ASA proudly announces the 2019 award recipients of the highest honors the Association confers. Awardees, selected by committees directly appointed by the ASA Council, will be honored during a ceremony on August 11 at the 2019 ASA Annual Meeting in New York City. A formal address by ASA President Mary Romero will follow the ceremony.
The officers of the Association extend heartfelt congratulations to the following honorees:
Sandra Barnes, Vanderbilt University
