Watch below as Professor Mark McCormack announces this year’s SAGE Prize for Innovation/Excellence (Sociology).

We are delighted to announce the winner of this year’s prize is Sarah Neal et al, for Community and Conviviality? Informal Social Life in Multicultural Places, 53(1), 69.

“Being awarded the annual Sage Prize for our Sociology paper is a huge honour, particularly given the quality of the other nominated papers and the strength of the content of Sociology Volume 53. We are delighted by this outcome and would like to thank the journal Editorial Team and the Sage Prize panel members for all their work and for rewarding our paper in this way. We are pleased that the paper’s themes of interdependencies and shared practices in the context of urban multiculture and racialised difference were viewed as significant and as having a wider resonance. In the face of a global pandemic the importance of such quotidian processes deserve restating as we try to find new ways of living together. We hope that this Sage Prize recognition will enable and encourage others to develop the ideas further, building on the longer tradition with which we engage in the paper.”
Sarah Neal, University of Sheffield
