2012 McCarthy Award Winner!

I am very pleased to announce that the winner of the 2012 John D. McCarthy Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Scholarship of Social Movements and Collective Behavior is Pamela Oliver!  We are thrilled that Pam will be accepting the award—an award that not only recognizes Pam’s important research accomplishments but also excellence in mentoring successive generations of scholars. This year’s award ceremony will be held on May 5, 2012.  Pam will be giving a public lecture prior to the award banquet.  Several of Pam’s friends, students, and colleagues will be on hand to offer reflections on Pam’s work and her influence on the field.  If this year’s ceremony is anything like prior McCarthy Award events, there will also be quite a few laughs (and once the wine starts flowing, a riot may ensue). In conjunction with the presentation of the McCarthy Award, the Center for the Study of Social Movements will also be hosting the third annual Young Scholars in Social Movements Conference on May 4th.  Advanced graduate students and recently minted PhD’s will be invited to present their work and receive feedback from the McCarthy Award winner and a distinguished panel of senior scholars in the field. 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 weeks—including instructions on how to apply for the Young Scholars Conference.  We will distribute the news on the CBSM listserv and also post the news on our Center’s website http://cssm.nd.edu Rory McVeigh Director, Center for the Study of Social Movements
