2015 McCarthy Award Winner!

Author: Bryant Crubaugh

The Center for the Study of Social Movements at the University of Notre Dame is very pleased to announce that the winner of the 2015 John D. McCarthy Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Scholarship of Social Movements and Collective Behavior is Sidney Tarrow!  The award not only recognizes Sid’s extraordinary achievements in research, but also the role that he has played in mentoring successive generations of scholars.  On his own, and in collaboration with his students and colleagues, Sid has directed the trajectory of social movement scholarship for decades, publishing upwards of 20 books and 135 articles.  According to Google Scholar, just one of those books (Power in Movements) has been cited in more than 8,000 books and articles.  We are thrilled that Sid has honored us by agreeing to accept the award, and we hope that you will join us for the celebration.
