SoSS colleagues win the Cultural Sociology SAGE Prize 2016

(26 October 2016)

Professor Nick Crossley and Dr Wendy Bottero, both from the School of Social Sciences, have won a SAGE Sociology Prize for Innovation and Excellence for an article published in Cultural Sociology

Their article, Music Worlds and Internal Goods: The role of convention, explores the pleasures and passions involved in being part of a particular music scene, and argues that as these experiences are the ‘stuff of life’ for many people, they should also be an important consideration for sociologists. 

The SAGE Prize for Innovation and Excellence is awarded annually to one paper in each of the British Sociological Association’s (BSA) four prestigious journals: Cultural Sociology, Sociological Research Online, Sociology, and Work, Employment and Society

As all the SAGE Sociology prize-winning articles are currently open access, you can read Nick and Wendy’s article on the BSA website
