         Subject: SSRC's Albert O. Hirschman Prize -- Call for Nominations

The Social Science Research Council invites nominations for the newly
established Albert O. Hirschman Prize, to be awarded annually to
scholars who have made outstanding contributions to international,
interdisciplinary social science research, theory, and public
communication. Nominations for 2007 are due by February 15.

The Prize recognizes Albert Hirschman's pioneering role in the
development of contemporary social science and public policy as well
as his life-long commitment to international economic development.
Exploring theory and practice, the history of ideas and the gathering
of new knowledge, the transformation of Latin America and the shape
of the modern world, Albert Hirschman has made scholarship effective.
He has nurtured innovative approaches to fostering growth, given
guidance to the pursuit of social change, and written in ways that
help social science effectively inform public affairs. His work
stands as an exemplar of the necessary knowledge that the Social
Science Research Council seeks to develop and the interdisciplinary
and international approach it encourages.

A distinguished committee of former and current members of the Board
of Directors of the Social Science Research Council will select one
recipient each year. The recipient will deliver the annual Albert O.
Hirschman Prize Lecture at a ceremony in New York. The lecture will
be published by the SSRC in the Albert O. Hirschman Lecture Series
and posted on the Council's website. The Prize carries an award of US $10,000.

Please send a nominating letter to Craig Calhoun, President, Social
Science Research Council, 810 Seventh Avenue, 31st Floor, New York,
NY 10019 or via email to
<mailto:president_at_ssrc.org>president_at_ssrc.org no later than February 15, 2007.
