BSA Philip Abrams Memorial Prize - Now Open

The BSA Philip Abrams Memorial Prize is for the best, first and sole-authored book within the discipline of sociology.

It was established in honour of the memory of Professor Philip Abrams whose work contributed substantially to sociology and social policy research in Britain.  He is remembered for the encouragement and assistance he provided to many young sociologists at the start of their careers. In recognition of his commitment to sociology as a discipline, the British Sociological Association established this prize to stimulate new ideas and fresh research in sociology by encouraging new authors.

The winner will be announced at the BSA Annual Conference 2017 which is to be held at the University of Manchester  from 4 - 6 April.  The winner will be presented with a cash prize of £1,000 and will also receive one year’s free subscription to The Sociological Review.

The closing date to enter is Friday 2 December and all entries must be sent to Margaret Luke for consideration.
