2012 Competition Winners
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 2012 competition for the Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology will open in January 2012 and applications will be judged by members of the Visual Sociology group of the International Sociological Association (ISA). Up to three 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. First prize is $2,500; second prize is $1,500; and third prize is $500.
