Call for Nominations for the 2023 Hans L. Zetterberg Prize in Sociology


Uppsala University invites you to nominate one or several candidates for the Hans L. Zetterberg Prize in Sociology to be awarded to a younger researcher, who with his/her scientific work, preferably through fruitful combination of theory and practice, has moved the research front forward.

The prize is for a younger researcher (40 years or less the year the prize is awarded), who through published work – and preferably work that has undergone the anonymous peer-review process - has reached an acknowledged position within the discipline of sociology but who is not at the end of his/her research career. The Hans L. Zetterberg Prize - the first for Sociology at Uppsala University - is awarded yearly and considered international. The prize awards the sum of SEK 100 000 (9, 054 EUR or 9, 679 US in today’s rate) made possible by a donation from the Zetterberg family. A short list of previous awardees can be found here.

The nomination letter for the 2023 call for the Hans L. Zetterberg’s Prize in Sociology should be short and concise, and include the full CV. of the person being nominated. Contact information for the nominee should also be included.

Deadline for submitting nominations is May 21 2023. Please send the nomination to the Faculty of Social Sciences of Uppsala University, who is responsible for handling them, and awarding the prize:
