American Sociological Association 2020

Sociology at UC Press

UC Press’s award-winning Sociology and Criminology publishing programs are known for their focus on contemporary social problems, global health, racial justice, and human rights. We publish ground-breaking books that have shaped and challenged the discipline.

Congrats to Our Award-Winning Authors!

None of this would exist without our amazing authors. We’re proud to be publishing the work of so many award-winning sociologists. Congratulations to this year’s ASA award-winners: Orly Clerge, Dawn Marie Dow, Angela Garcia, Adia Harvey Wingfield, Jerry Flores, Norah MacKendrick, Tey Meadow, Aldon Morris, Eddy U, Celeste Watkins-Hayes, and Melissa Wilde. And a call-out to additional 2020 award-winning authors beyond the ASA: Miriam Boeri, Trevor Hoppe, Nazanin Shahrokni, and Ranita Ray.
