Accepting Nominations for the 2015 McGannon Book Award

Each year, the McGannon Center presents the Donald McGannon Award for Social and Ethical Relevance in Communications Technology Research to the most notable book addressing issues of communications policy published during the previous year. The Center recognizes the winning entry with a $2,000 prize.

Nominations for the 2015 Award currently are being accepted. Please note that last year we changed the focus of the award to book-length research published in 2015 that addresses or informs the social justice and/or ethical dimensions of communication technology, broadly defined. Authors of the winning book will be awarded $2,000 and receive a plaque commemorating the award.

Nominations should consist of a cover letter briefly summarizing the book’s research focus and findings, along with four copies of the book. Self-nominations are welcome, as are submissions from early career researchers and scholars from diverse backgrounds. Edited volumes are not eligible for consideration. Deadline for consideration is March 1, 2016.
