Call for Nominations:

Surveillance Studies Book Award: 2015 and 2016

The Surveillance Studies Network invites nominations (including self-nominations) for the annual Surveillance Studies Book Award.

The award is given in recognition of an outstanding monograph on surveillance and society published during the preceding year.

We are currently inviting nominations for 2015 (books with a ‘2014’ copyright date) and 2016 (books with a ‘2015’ copyright date).

Single or multi-authored works are eligible, but not edited volumes.

The winner/s will be honored at one of the bi-annual surveillance studies conferences. They will receive an award amount of £100 (to be split among authors if there is more than one), as well as a 1-year membership for the Surveillance Studies Network (SSN), which provides many benefits including discounts on all SSN-sponsored conferences and events.

The deadline for nominations and the receipt of 2 books from the publisher is September 16th, 2016.

Using the subject heading “SSN Book Award Nomination,” please email the relevant committee chair (listed below) to organize sending copies of the nominated book. Please
