Janice Irvine Wins Contexts Claude Award

ISI Board Member and Sociology professor Janice Irvine was awarded the Contexts Claude Award for "Can't Ask, Can't Tell: How Institutional Review Boards Keep Sex in the Closet" by the American Sociology Association's magazine. She will be honored at the editorial board meeting during the ASA conference on August 16.

Her article was published in the same magazine in spring 2012, and the award is designed to recognize "outstanding contributions to Contexts...as judged by the members of the magazine's editorial board." The award series is named after Claude Fischer, the ASA magazine's founding editor.
