Papers should be manuscript length and no longer than 35 typed, double-spaced pages. Self-nominations will be accepted.

The Martin Levine Memorial Dissertation Award was established to honor the memory of Martin Levine, who died of AIDS in 1993. It provides $3,000 to a graduate student (and $500 to an honorable mention) in the final stages of dissertation research and writing, who is working on those topics to which Levine devoted his career: 1) the sociology of sexualities, 2) the sociology of homosexuality, and 3) HIV/AIDS research. It is designed to help students complete their dissertations, and as such the committee evaluates dissertation proposals rather than completed work. In accordance with ASA policy, all award nominees must be current members of the association in order to be considered. In addition, nominees must join the sexualities section if they are not already members.
Send your proposals to: Michael Kimmel (firstname.lastname@example.org), Department of Sociology, SUNY at Stony Brook, Stony Brook, NY 11794.
"The Simon and Gagnon Award honors career contributions to the study of sexualities as represented by a body of work or a single book. This award commemorates decades of research and writing on sexualities by Professor William Simon (University of Houston) who died on July 21, 2000, and his longtime collaborator, Professor John Gagnon (SUNY-Stony Brook). The winner will receive the award at the annual meeting of the ASA in Montreal in 2017. The section will also organize a session around the awardee’s work or scholarly interests for that same year. Nominations must include a letter that details how the nominee has made a significant contribution to the field of the sociology of sexualities. Nominations without such a letter will not be considered."
Please submit letters of nomination via email to: Héctor Carrillo, email@example.com.
