2012 ASSOCIATION FOR HUMANIST SOCIOLOGY BOOK AWARD
Nominations for the 2010 AHS Book Award are being sought. Authors, publishers, and AHS members may nominate books for consideration. The recipient will be recognized at our annual meeting this November, in Nashville, TN. Nominations should be for books in Sociology or an interdisciplinary social science that approach their subjects from a humanist perspective. As our Mission states:
Humanist sociologists strive as professionals, as scholars, and as activists to uncover and address social issues, working with others to lessen the pain of social problems. We view people not merely as products of social forces, but also as shapers of social life, capable of creating social orders in which everyone's potential can unfold. Difficult times give humanist sociologists opportunities to apply their special skills and perspectives for the purpose of creating a more humane world.
Eligible books should have been published in the calendar year 2011 or the first half of 2012. If a book was submitted for last year’s consideration, it should not be nominated again. Individuals and publishers should nominate no more than two books. Textbooks, edited volumes, and anthologies are generally not considered except in rare circumstances.
To nominate a book, publishers or authors should send one copy each to members of the award committee listed below. In lieu of hard copies, pdf files of the manuscript are acceptable, Also, please send the author’s (or authors’) name(s) and contact information Rick Eckstein at email@example.com. AHS members who are nominating books but are not authors should send their nominations directly to Rick Eckstein who will contact the publishers. The deadline for nominations is July 15th.
