The 2019 C. Wright Mills Award Committee selected Dr. Adia Harvey Wingfield's book, Flatlining: Race, Work, and Health Care in the New Economy, University of California Press, as this year's winner.


Dr. Carla Shedd, Chair of the 2019 C. Wright Mills Award Committee and Associate Professor of Sociology & Urban Education, The Graduate Center, CUNY said of Dr. Wingfield’s work:

Flatlining by Dr. Adia Harvey Wingfield is an astutely intersectional analysis of the myriad ways inequality in organizations is produced and reproduced. When "equity work" is shouldered by those who are the most marginalized in the workplace, we have a sociological conundrum that should be at the center of contemporary research and policy agendas--especially now that COVID19 will exacerbate the trends documented in this timely and significant book.

   

   

 

Congratulations, Dr. Wingfield!
