Congratulations to Cynthia Cranford who recently won the Canadian Sociological Association John Porter Tradition of Excellence Book Award for Home Care Fault Lines: Understanding Tensions and Creating Alliances which was published in 2020 by Cornell University Press. Professor Cranford’s areas of specialization include research on the inequalities of gender, work, and migration and the collective efforts to resist them. Home Care Fault Lines analyzes the dynamics that both exacerbate and alleviate tensions between elderly and disabled people’s quest for flexible services and workers’ pursuit of security. Professor Cranford’s book also won the Errol Sharpe Book Prize in 2021 and was a co-winner that same year for the American Sociological Association, Labor and Labor Movements Section, Distinguished Scholarly Book Award. Congratulations, Professor Cranford!
