Sociology Chair Amanda Miller receives 2018 Goode Book Award


Amanda Miller, associate professor and chair of sociology, recently received the 2018 Goode Book Award for Cohabitation Nation: Gender, Class, and the Remaking of Relationships, a book she co-authored with Sharon Sassler of Cornell University.

The William J. Goode Book Award is the most prestigious book award in the field of family sociology. The award will be formally given at the American Sociological Association meeting in Philadelphia in August 2018.

“Looking at the list of past recipients, I am completely humbled to have my name appear next to theirs,” Miller said.

Cohabitation Nation, which was featured in national media outlets, including The New York Times and NPR, explores why more unwed Americans are living together than ever before, and how that trend is redefining relationships.
