The Stuart A. Rice Award for Career Achievement will be presented to Steven A. Tuch, Professor of Sociology, Public Policy and Public Administration at the George Washington University, in recognition of his many contributions to scholarship and teaching. Professor Tuch also served as DCSS President (2000-2001) and maintained the DCSS e-mail news list for many years. His career has been focused on two issues: the place of quantitative methodology in the analysis of social science data and the study of inequality in the US and Europe, with a special emphasis on race relations in the US.

Steve has been an active scholar and collaborator, frequently co-authoring with current and past members of DCSS. In 2022, he published (with Paul M. Kellstedt and Guy D. Whitten) The Fundamentals of Social Research (Cambridge University Press). His 2013 book, Religion, Politics, and Polarization, co-authored with William V. D’Antonio and Josiah R. Baker, won the DCSS Rosenberg award in 2015. Other books include The Other African Americans: Contemporary African and Caribbean Immigrants in the United States (co-edited with Yoku Shaw-Taylor, 2007); Race and Policing in America: Conflict and Reform (co-authored with Ronald Weitzer, 2006); and Racial Attitudes in the 1990s: Continuity and Change (co-edited with Jack K. Martin, 1997). Among many articles, he has recently returned to one of his central concerns in “Racial Attitudes in the Deep South: Persistence and change at the University of Alabama, 1963-2013” (with Michael Hughes et. al.), published in Sociological Inquiry in 2023.

Professor Tuch has also been active in building bridges between Polish and American sociology in works like “Urbanism and Tolerance Revisited: Racial Attitudes in the United States” with Michael Hughes in Marta Smagacz-Poziemska, Krzysztof Frysztacki, and Andrzej Bukowski (eds.), Re-Imagining the City: Municipality and Urbanity Today from a Sociological Perspective, 2017.

Steve has been a supportive and generous advisor to dozens of doctoral and MA students in the graduate program and served as Department Chair from 2007 to 2013.

We hope you will join us in honoring Professor Steven A. Tuch at the April 18 DCSS awards reception.
