July 5, 2023

Toronto –  A paper co-authored by Laura Doering, an associate professor of strategic management at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, received the Outstanding Recent Contribution Award from the Social Psychology Section of the American Sociological Association. Time and Punishment: How Individuals Respond to Being Sanctioned in Voluntary Associations, with Amandine Ody-Brasier, an associate professor at McGill University, was published in the American Journal of Sociology.

This the second year in a row a Rotman faculty member has received the award. Last year, András Tilcsik, an associate professor of strategic management and the Canada Research Chair in Strategy, Organizations, and Society, was honoured for his paper, Statistical Discrimination and the Rationalization of Stereotypes, published in the American Sociological Review.

In addition, Gabriel Cavalli, a PhD student at the Rotman School, won the Steven Klepper Award for Best Young Scholar Paper at the DRUID conference held in Lisbon last month for his paper, How Scientific Organizations Adapt to Novel Methodological Advances: The Impact of AlphaFold v1. DRUID is one of the world's premier academic conferences on innovation and the dynamics of structural, institutional and geographical change.
