Cross and Pedulla share ASA award for their work to advance the field of family sociology

Cross and Pedulla share award for most impactful paper from ASA

HCPDS faculty members Christina Cross and David Pedulla were both recognized by the American Sociological Association (ASA) with the ASA Family Section’s 2023 Article of the Year Award for their independent journal articles published last year. Cross, a former postdoctoral fellow at HCPDS and current member of the Social Demography Seminar planning committee at the Center, was recognized for a paper that continues her previous scholarship on two-parent families by introducing a new model that factors in racial inequities. Pedulla was recognized for his work to facilitate gender equality in workplaces and families by more closely examining when and why work-family policies, such as flextime and parental leave, are utilized (or not). The Harvard Gazette reports on this shared award.
