AoIR Book Award

We are happy to announce that AoIR has instituted a new award to recognize excellence in internet-related scholarship. In creating this award, we want to extend AoIR’s reach, recognizing and promoting excellent research that goes beyond conference presentations. We are truly excited about this new award, and invite all those eligible to apply. We will accept nominations (self and other) for Best Internet Research-Related Book, for the past year (i.e. 2010). Any single authored book published in that time frame related to Internet research is eligible for the award. The committee to select this award is notable for its own contributions to the field and includes Steve Jones, Sonia Livingstone, and Peng Hwa Ang. Submissions for consideration must be sent to Steve Jones by February 1, 2011. Three copies of the book should be submitted to him at the following address:

Prof. Steve Jones
Department of Communication (m/c 132)
University of Illinois at Chicago
1007 W. Harrison St.
Chicago, IL 60607
USA

The winner of the award will be announced in the spring of 2011. In addition to winning a cash prize, the individual will also be invited to participate as a featured speaker at the next AoIR conference, on a topic of their choosing. Please contact Steve Jones at sjones@uic.edu or Mia Consalvo at consalvo@mit.edu if you have any questions about this process.
