Book Award for The McGannon Center

Each year, the McGannon Center awards a book prize to the author(s) of a manuscript that our panel of outside reviewers consider to be the most notable book addressing or informing the social justice, policy, and/or ethical dimensions of communication technology, broadly defined. The Center recognizes the winning entry with a $2,000 prize and invites the winner(s) to give a presentation about the work at Fordham.

Nominations for our annual book award are generally solicited in Fall, and should be book-length research published in the current calendar year, or in late Fall of the prior year (so, submissions for this year’s 2022 Award should be published in 2022 or Fall 2021 and not previously submitted). 

Congratulations to our most recent winner, Dr. Karen Levy for her book Data Driven: Truckers, Technology, and the New Workplace Surveillance. More on the 2022 Award Winner here.
