Yan Long was named the co-winner of this year's American Sociology Association Dissertation Award for my work entitled, "Constructing Political Actorhood: The Emergence and Transformation of AIDS Advocacy in China, 1989-2012." As the ASA Award Committee stated, "the committee was very impressed with the very large amount of data gathered, the compelling sociological account of political action, and the theoretical sophistication of the dissertation."

Congratulations on this prestigious award!
