Carl Couch Center for Social and Internet Research is proud to announce the recipients of the 2017 President’s Award, the highest honor presented by Carl Couch Center to recognize individuals who have made sustaining contributions to social research.
Mark D. Johns won the 2017 President’s Award for his sustaining effort in
promoting the research of information technologies as extrapolated by Carl

Couch. One of his most outstanding achievements is editing the 2nd edition

of INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES AND SOCIAL ORDERS, by Carl Couch, for

publication in 2017, more than 20 years after the book’s initial

publication in 1996. His effort contributes to the longevity of Carl

Couch’s works in information technologies.
Norman K. Denzin and Michael Katovich won the 2017 President’s Award for
their sustaining works for more than 30 years in promoting the New Iowa

School of sociological thought. One of the most lasting achievements in

this endeavor of theirs is their work in publishing THE ROMANCE OF

DISCOVERY, by Carl Couch, more than 25 years after Couch penned the

manuscript. Their commitment to preserve and advance Couch’s scholarship

is recognized by this award.
The inaugural 2016 Couch Center President’s Award winners were Robert A.
Hintz, Jr. and Stephen G. Wieting.
