Maria Krysan, Mick Couper, Ren Farley and Tyrone Forman have received the Oliver Cromwell Cox Award from ASA's Racial and Ethnic Minorities Section. The award, which recognizes the best research article in the sociological study of race and ethnicity during the prior 3 years, is for their 2009 AJS article "Does Race Matter in Neighborhood Preferences?" The article reports on an innovative experiment that tests the relative color-blindness of neighborhood preferences and analyzes the psychosocial factors associated with these preferences.
