Judith Stacey, Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and Sociology at New York University and author of Unhitched: Love, Marriage, and Family Values from West Hollywood to Western China, has won the 2012 Simon-Gagnon Lifetime Achievement Award. Congratulations from all of us at NYU Press!
The Simon and Gagnon Award honors career contributions to the study of sexualities as represented by a body of work or a single book. It is the most prestigious award granted by the ASA Section on Sexualities. The Simon and Gagnon 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 award will be presented at the upcoming annual ASA meeting in Denver in August 2012. Hope to see you there!
