Nominations Open for 2018 SAGE-CASBS Award

March 1, 2018

The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University and SAGE Publishing now are accepting nominations for the 2018 SAGE-CASBS Award.

Established in 2013, the SAGE-CASBS Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the behavioral and social sciences that advance our understanding of pressing social issues. It underscores the role of the social and behavioral sciences in enriching and enhancing public policy and good governance.

“Social and behavioral science research improves human welfare in a way that other sciences cannot,” noted SAGE founder and executive chairman Sara Miller McCune and CASBS director Margaret Levi in a joint statement. “Accordingly, social and behavioral scientists deserve recognition for their contributions. SAGE and CASBS are proud to present an award that honors and celebrates transformative ideas and knowledge that also advance public discourse, influence policy debates and, ideally, lead to real-world solutions and change.”

Past winners of the award include:

  • Psychologist Daniel Kahneman, 2002 Nobel laureate in economic sciences and author of the acclaimed book Thinking, Fast and Slow (2011).
  • Pedro Noguera, the sociologist, education rights activist and Distinguished Professor of Education at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at UCLA.
  • Kenneth Prewitt, former Director of the U.S. Census Bureau and the Carnegie Professor of Public Affairs at Columbia University.
  • William Julius Wilson, the Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor at Harvard University.

In addition to a cash prize, the SAGE-CASBS Award winner will deliver a public lecture to be held at CASBS in November 2018.
