Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize Winners Announced
The Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology has announced the winners of the 2012 competition. The prize recognizes students in the social sciences who incorporate visual analysis in their work. It is named for Rachel Dorothy Tanur (1958–2002), an urban planner and lawyer who cared deeply about people and their lives and was an acute observer of living conditions and human relationships. The prizes will be awarded at the Second ISA Forum of Sociology: Social Justice and Democratization, to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in August 2012. The winning entries examine Bedik women in Senegal, a butcher at work in the American Midwest, and an interstate‐highway underpass in Austin, Texas.
