David Brunsma, who earned his PhD at Notre Dame in 1993, was awarded the 2023 Cox-Johnson Award by American Sociology Association (ASA). The Cox-Johnson award recognizes scholars who have made important scholarly contributions in the areas of social justice, human rights, activism, and racial-ethnic groups that have experienced discrimination. Along with co-winner, David Embrick, Brunsma founded and edited a new ASA journal in 2013, Sociology of Race & Ethnicity, which has become the flagship outlet for sociological work in the area of race-ethnicity. With his mentoring, scholarship, and leadership, Brunsma has left an enduring positive impact on the field of sociology.
