APA Publication Awards – Updated


The American Philosophical Association has announced the winners of some recent publication prizes. Sally Haslanger has won the 2014 Joseph B. Gittler Award for her Resisting Reality: Social Construction and Social Critique.

The APA Book Prize is awarded every other year and for 2013 the winner is Global Justice and Territory by Cara Nine as the winner. Honorable mentions went to Globalization and Global Justice: Shrinking Distance, Expanding Obligations by Nicole Hassoun and Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality, and the Law by Elizabeth Brake.

UPDATE: Amy Ferrer writes to inform me that I should keep my day job. Not in so many words, of course, but she did point out (a) that the Book Prize announcement is kind of old news, and (b) I missed a bunch of other APA awards news, including:
