Jack Levin’s career accomplishments are no secret. Now, he has been honored to learn that he has been awarded the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award by the Society for the Study of Social Problems, whose Crime and Juvenile Delinquency Division has selected Levin’s work as making an extraordinary contribution to the study of violence and hate.
Jack’s award will be presented at the SSSP meetings in New York, where a panel of scholars will comment on his work.
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology is delighted to announce that our new colleague, Professor Phil Brown, has just been awarded the Reeder Award at Annual Meetings of the American Sociological Association in Denver. This prestigious award is given to scholars who have made distinguished contributions to the field of Medical Sociology. It seeks to recognize scholarly contributions that have contributed to both theory and research in medical sociology. The Reeder Award also acknowledges teaching, mentoring, and training as well as service to the medical sociology community, broadly defined. In the light of Professor Brown’s long record of scholarship, activism, Mentoring, and institution building, please join us in congratulating Dr. Brown for this much deserved award.
Professor Steve Vallas, Chair of Sociology and Anthropology, attended the award ceremony, and noted, “This was an inspiring presentation. Listening to Phil review the course of his scholarly work and social activism. I found it hard to believe that a single individual could have launched so many interrelated projects. He is model for us all.”
Professor Brown joins Northeastern as of this fall semester. He is the newly appointed Director of the Institute for Social Science and Environmental Health, and is jointly appointed in Sociology and Health Sciences. The Department of Sociology and Anthropology is excited to both welcome and congratulate Phil on this honor.
