Jens Beckert Awarded Leibniz Prize!
HUGE congratulations are in order for SASE mainstay Jens Beckert, who has just been awarded the 2.5M € Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize – Germany’s highest scientific award. This hefty sum is to be put toward further research, which we look forward to learning about. Beckert is one of the few social scientists to receive this honor, which has historically favored natural and formal sciences.
Three cheers for Jens, who has put economic sociology even more on the map!
