The Joshua A. Fishman Award Presented by Mouton

Award to recognize early-career scholars in the sociology of language 
De Gruyter Mouton invites self-nominations for the Joshua A. Fishman Award recognizing outstanding unpublished PhD dissertations on a topic pertaining to the sociology of language. 
About the award

The award was established in 2018 to honor Joshua A. Fishman’s intellectual contribution to research on the sociology of language, the field that he so prominently shaped for many decades. With this award, De Gruyter Mouton aims to ensure that his legacy continues to thrive among emerging scholars in the field. 
The award is intended to support scholars at the early stages of their careers. Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of external reviewers. Final acceptance for publication will be at the sole discretion of De Gruyter Mouton in light of peer review. 

The award carries a cash prize of € 1,000 plus a € 100 book voucher. Up to three awards may be granted. Moreover, award recipients will be invited to publish a revised version of their dissertation as a monograph in De Gruyter Mouton’s  Contributions to the Sociology of Language (CSL) book series founded by Fishman and publishing leading research in the sociology of language for over 50 years.
Deadline for submissions: January 15, 2024
