RSF grantees Alexandra Killewald (Harvard University) and Paula England (New York University) have won awards from the Inequality, Poverty, and Mobility Section of the American Sociological Association (ASA). Killewald won the William Julius Wilson Early Career Award. England was named the Robert M. Hauser Distinguished Scholar.
The ASA’s Section on Inequality, Poverty, and Mobility fosters research and disseminates knowledge on the distribution of material and nonmaterial resources, and the economic, social, and cultural forces that generate and perpetuate unequal distributions of these resources. Its awards recognize outstanding work by both emerging and established scholars.
Alexandra (Sasha) Killewald has received RSF grant support for her research on the intergenerational transmission of wealth. RSF has supported England's research on work in care occupations and the gender wage gap. England is co-editor with Mauro Guillén, Randall Collins, and Marshall Meyer of The New Economic Sociology (2005).
