Lisa McCormick Receives SAGE Prize

The SAGE Prize for Innovation and/or Excellence is awarded annually to one paper in each of the British Sociological Association’s four prestigious journals. The prize is awarded at the Annual Conference to the paper published in the previous year’s volume judged to represent innovation and/or excellence in the field.

The aim of the prize is to reward work that:

  • takes the discipline in new and distinctive directions
  • takes a novel look at social phenomena, theory or method
  • moves established debates onwards in a fundamental way or radically changes the nature of the debate
  • is original and imaginative and makes people think in new ways
  • develops new theoretical, conceptual or methodological approaches to certain subject matters; and yields new sorts of empirical data, understanding or knowledge
  • contributes importantly to wider sociology, and possibly also to other disciplines
  • makes connections that have not been made before
  • makes a significant contribution to public sociology and social critique
