Sociology professor Martin Monto has received the Hugo Beigel Award for Scholarly Excellence from the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality. The award goes to the best paper published in their Journal of Sex Research, and was chosen from a field of 70 papers. The award is designed to promote and reward research excellence in sexology. Monto wrote the paper with former UP student Anna Carey as co-author. The award will be presented at the society’s annual conference on Nov. 12-15 in Albuquerque, N.M.
The winning article, titled “A new standard of sexual behavior? Are claims associated with the ‘hookup culture’ supported by General Social Survey data?,” began as Carey’s senior thesis in sociology, and Monto continued working on it after she graduated.
