the sullivan award
i just read about a new award for john sullivan, a friend and colleague who chairs the minnversity's political science department:
Regents Professor John Sullivan (CLA) has been honored by the American Political Science Association, along with Blackwell Publishers, with the creation of the John Sullivan Award. The award will be given to the best paper published annually in Political Behavior.
a cursory glance at john's cv establishes that this honor is richly deserved. he has made inordinate contributions to political psychology, but many sociologists most appreciate his many years of service co-editing those enormously useful li'l green sage books, quantitative applications in the social sciences.
i've taken home a few awards, but cannot imagine one that bears my name. the chris uggen award would probably involve most unusual fashion choices by a professor or most frequent nodding and smiling during a lecture on a particularly grim topic. no, i've got a better shot having a sandwich named after me. i'll therefore begin campaigning to rechristen bullwinkle's garlic, fried onions, and hot pepper burger, heretofore known as the lonely guy (for its anti-social halitosis-inducing effects).
what scholarly award or food item deserves your moniker?
