Sociology SAGE Prize 2017: Winning Article Announced

The Sociology SAGE Prize is awarded each year to a paper published in the previous year's volume judged to represent innovation or excellence in the field. The articles published in Sociology always provide a strong pool of candidates, from which the journal editors select a shortlist, and this year was no exception. A panel, comprised of Sociology Editorial Board members, discussed the shortlisted entries and selected the winning article, according to the prize's criteria.

Congratulations to Lucy Mayblin, Aneta Piekut, and Gill Valentine for their paper ‘'Other' Posts in 'Other' Places: Poland through a Postcolonial Lens?’

The Sociology Editors are planning to record a podcast with the authors which will be made available on the journal website later in the year.

Details of the shortlisted articles for all the BSA journals can be found on the SAGE Prize page and we encourage members to make use of their journal access (via the Members' Area) and read these highly engaging research articles.
