Max Besbris awarded Eastern Sociological Society Early Career Public Sociology Award

Congratulations to Max Besbris for receiving the Eastern Sociological Society Early Career Public Sociology Award. This award recognizes sociologists who have done cutting-edge sociological research and engaged in meaningful public work using that research. From ESS – “Meaningful public work here includes high profile public dissemination, such as Op-Eds or public media appearances, but especially values sustained public work that uses sociological skills and research in ways that help organizations or persons with which the scholar works, helps resist policies by institutions or government that cause harm and promote policies that help people, direct service to research participants, and in other ways. The awards seek to recognize sociological work that improves public welfare, broadly understood, or the lives of research participants.” Congratulations to Max Besbris!
