Distinguished Scholarly Publication Award

Distinguished Scholarly Publication 2019 Award 

Deadline is March 31, 2019

The ASA Section on the Sociology of Consumers and Consumption Distinguished Scholarly Publication Award goes to the author(s) of the best published article/chapter that makes a significant, original contribution to the understanding of ideas about, and practices of, consumption. The sociology of consumption, broadly defined, includes subjects dealing with theoretical and/or empirical questions related to consumers, commodities, and/or consumer markets, and engages with a larger body of research on these topics.

Please note that the Distinguished Publication Award alternates each year between articles/book chapters and books/edited collections. This year, the award focuses on articles/chapters; in 2020, the award will go to a book/edited collection.

Eligibility: Section members may nominate articles or chapters published in the last two years (2017 to 2019). Self-nominations are welcome. The same publication may not be nominated for both Section awards (Distinguished Scholarly Publication Award and Student Paper Award). Authors must be members of the Consumers and Consumption Section at the time of nomination.

 To apply: Email a nominating letter, including a description of the article/chapter and its significance, along with the article/chapter (as a pdf) to each committee member, listed below. Nominations that are not accompanied by a nomination letter will not be considered for the prize. The deadline for receipt of all materials for this award is Sunday, March 31, 2019.
