Call for Nominations

Midwest Sociological Society is seeking nominations for the 2020 MSS Distinguished Book Award competition. 

The MSS Distinguished Book Award is presented to a book, published by a member of the Society in the previous three years, which makes an exemplary, original, and substantive contribution to sociological understanding. The award carries a cash prize of $250.

The Midwest Sociological Society sponsors the Distinguished Book Award in order to recognize the outstanding contributions to sociological research, theory, and policy analysis produced by its members in the form of books. The award helps to fulfill the scholarly Mission of the Society of “advancing sociological knowledge.” 

Book nominations are due October 31, 2019, including three (3) copies of the nominated book.
