The Department of Sociology is proud to announce that Dr. Dawn Robinson received the 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Sociology of Emotions Section of the American Sociological Association at their annual meetings in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This award is given every two years in recognition of a distinguished record of research contributions to the sociology of emotions. Dr. Robinson’s research in the sociology of emotion focuses on the ways in which emotion and affect reflect and feedback into structural arrangements and cultural meanings. Her research demonstrates the link between identity and emotion and characterizes the way that link is culturally situated. Her recent research focuses on how classroom networks shape affective processes, on representations of affective-linguistic culture in North African cultures, on developing non-reactive emotion measures of emotion in social interaction, and on emotional responses to injustice. Dr. Robinson previously served as Secretary-Treasurer and later Chair of ASA’s Sociology of Emotions Section. Her co-edited book (with Jody Clay-Warner), Social Structure and Emotion, received the 2010 Best Book Award from the ASA Section on the Sociology of Emotion. Her research on emotion and affect has appeared in outlets including American Sociological Review, Annual Review of Sociology, Social Forces, Social Psychology Quarterly, Emotion Review, and Motivation and Emotion.
