February announcements

Hello Fellow CBSM Section Members!

Here are some announcements for the end of the month.    First, please renew your ASA and section membership.   We have dozens of members who need to renew.  This will be my only reminder to those of you in this situation, as the ASA is taking you off the list after today.  On a happier note, congratulations to the 2014 John D. McCarthy Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Scholarship in Social Movements:  Bert Klandermans!  He will be accepting his award at Notre Dame on May 3. Congratulations, Bert!

1. Call for Applications, The Sociological Initiatives Foundation—Caitlin Patler.

http://www.sifoundation.org/ It offers small grants to academic/activist partnerships working on specific social change goals. I was just informed that I received a grant from SIF for a study about the DACA program, in collaboration with Dream Team Los Angeles. I would be happy to speak/share materials with section members who may be interested in applying for the 2014 funding cycle.  Caitlin–c.patler@ucla.edu

2. Fifth Annual Young Scholars Conference, Notre Dame—Rory McVeigh.

Announcing the Fifth Annual Young Scholars in Social Movements Mini-Conference

Hosted by the Center for the Study of Social Movements, University of Notre Dame May 2, 2014.

In conjunction with the presentation of the John D. McCarthy Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Scholarship in Social Movements, The Center for the Study of Social Movements at Notre Dame will be hosting a “Young Scholars” Conference the day before the award events. The recipient of the McCarthy Award, Bert Klandermans will be in attendance and other senior scholars visiting Notre Dame for the award presentation will serve as discussants for the conference.

We would like to invite 12 advanced graduate students and early-career faculty to present a work solidly in-progress at the conference, enjoy an opportunity to discuss their work with some of the leading scholars in the field, and meet others in the new cohort of social movement scholars. Conference attendees will also be invited to the McCarthy Award Lecture and the award banquet onMay 3. The Center will pay for meals, up to three nights lodging, and contribute $500 toward travel expenses for each of the conference attendees.

The Center will select invitees from all nominations received by February 28, 2014. Nominations will be accepted for ABD graduate students and those who have held their Ph.D.s less than two years. Nominations must be written by the nominee’s faculty dissertation advisor (or a suitable substitute intimately familiar with the nominee’s research, if the advisor is unavailable). Nominations should include:

A letter of nomination. The CV of the nominee.  A one-page abstract of the work to be presented.

Nominations should be sent via email to Rory McVeigh, Director of the Center for the Study of Social Movements, rmcveigh@nd.edu.

2014 McCarthy Award Winner!

The Center for the Study of Social Movements at the University of Notre Dame is very pleased to announce that the winner of the 2014 John D. McCarthy Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Scholarship of Social Movements and Collective Behavior is Bert Klandermans!  The award not only recognizes Bert’s extraordinary achievements in research, but also the role that he has played in mentoring successive generations of scholars.  Bert is often referred to as an international ambassador for social movement scholarship, in recognition of the way in which he has connected social movement scholars in the United States to those in Europe and in other parts of the world as well.  We are thrilled that Bert has honored us by agreeing to accept the award, and we hope that you will join us for the celebration.

This year’s award ceremony will be held on May 3 on the Notre Dame campus.  Bert will be giving a public lecture prior to the award banquet.  At the banquet, several of his friends and colleagues will be on hand to offer reflections on his work and influence on the field.  It is a good bet that those paying tribute will also take advantage of the opportunity to roast as well as toast our guest of honor.

In conjunction with the presentation of the McCarthy Award, the Center for the Study of Social Movements will also be hosting the fifth annual Young Scholars in Social Movements Conference onMay 2nd.

We hope that many of you will mark your calendars and plan to join us for these events.  Please be on the lookout for more information in the coming days and weeks.  We will distribute the news on the CBSM listserv and also post the news on our Center’s website http://nd.edu/~cssm/
