GSA confers 2004 Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award to W. Ontario's Connidis and McMullin

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Ingrid Connidis and Dr. Julie McMullin of the University of Western Ontario's Sociology Department as the 2004 recipients of the Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award. This distinguished honor recognizes insightful and innovative publications on aging and life course development in the behavioral and social sciences.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 57th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 19th-23rd, 2004 in Washington, DC. The actual conferral will occur at 12:15 p.m. on Sunday the 21st in the Balcony A-M room of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among gerontological health care clinical, administrative, and research professionals.

The duo's paper, "Sociological Ambivalence and Family Ties: A Critical Perspective," was deemed by the selection committee to be a conceptual publication that represents state-of-the-art thinking in aging and life course development. Both Connidis and McMullin hold degrees from the University of Western Ontario and the University of Toronto.

The Kalish Award is underwritten by Baywood Publishing Company, with whom Dr. Kalish was long associated. Any empirical or conceptual publication that represents state-of-the-art thinking in aging and life course development is eligible for the award, provided it is in English and was published in the last three years.
