The Rachel Tanur Prize for Visual Sociology

Hosted by the Social Science Research Council, the biennial Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology 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 Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology is made possible by a generous gift from the Mark Family Fund.
