Schutz Lecture
Share |


The Alfred Schutz Lecture in Social Philosophy or the Philosophy of the Human Sciences, is given by a philosopher with distinction in one of these fields, with preference for work that employs phenomenological or humanistic approaches in the analysis of society or social phenomena. The lecture is presented annually at a divisional meeting of the APA and will rotate among the divisions.

Frequency: Every year, but occasionally years may be skipped due to the rotation of the lecture among the three divisional meetings. This prize has been temporarily suspended.

Award Amount: $1000, plus travel costs not to exceed $750.

Selection

The Schutz Lecturer is selected by a committee appointed by the chair of the APA's committee on lectures, publications, and research (LPR), in consultation with LPR committee members.
