Honoring David D. Franks, ASA Sociology of Emotions Section #sssi #sociology

To my friends and colleagues in SSSI,

On Monday Aug 24, 2015 at 3:30 pm at the ASA Emotions Section Business

Meeting in Chicago, David Franks will receive the Lifetime Achievement

Award for this section.

ASA Emotions Section, Business Meeting,


Hilton Chicago

Lake Ontario Room,

8th floor

I wanted you to know in case you might be attending and want to be part of

this ceremony honoring David and his work.

David’s first work and his first scholarly home (and mine too) was SSSI.

He brought this important perspective and body of theory to emotions

studiesHis career of accomplishments includes authored and edited books,

scholarly papers, book and handbook chapters, and the edited annual, *Social

Perspectives on Emotions: A Research Annual*.

Whether introducing the sociology of emotions or arguing for a field called

“neurosociology,” David Franks was moving us social scientists into new

interdisciplinary directions. David’s 2010 book, *Neurosociology: The Nexus

between Neuroscience and Social Psychology* demonstrated how biological

systems implement social processes and human behavior. This book brought

new perspectives to the discipline of sociology and won the Outstanding

Book Award (2012) of the ASA Section on Evolution, Biology, and Society.

His next book manuscript will be published in 2016 as *Fundamentals of

Neurosociology and Current Findings.*

Please join me in congratulating David on the occasion of this honor!
