Call for Nominations: Honorary Member

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

The Executive Board invites nominations for an Honorary Member award in the International Sociology of Sport Association. This award honors outstanding contributions to the International Sociology of Sport Association and to the sociological study of sport. The recipient of this award must meet both of the following criteria: a) a long career of service to the International Sociology of Sport Association, and b) a distinguished international academic career as a sociologist of sport. Individuals who are retired from formal academic positions are eligible for Honorary Member awards. In addition, the International Sociology of Sport Association will consider retrospectively honoring an individual’s service and scholarship with a ceremonial posthumous Honorary Member award.

 

Honorary Members in the International Sociology of Sport Association receive:

  • Full, lifetime membership in the International Sociology of Sport Association, including subscription to the International Review for the Sociology of Sport;
  • Free, lifetime registration to the International Sociology of Sport Association’s annual conference.

The list of current Honorary Members can be found on the ISSA web page.

 

Nominations:

Nominators should submit a 1 to 2-page document (letter) by November 30, 2016 that describes in as much detail as possible how the nominee meets the International Sociology of Sport’s Honorary Member criteria. Download the nomination form, and submit by email or post to:
