Wendell Bell, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, has received an Inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Sociological Association’s Research Committee on Futures Research for his contribution to futures research. Five inaugural awards were given to honor great living scholars from generations born before the end of World War II who have made, in different ways, distinguished contributions to forward-oriented sociology. Bell, the only awardee from the United States, received his award from the president of the research committee, Markus S. Schulz (University of Illinois/Urbana-Champaign), at a special dinner held in New Haven, CT. Other awardees included Ulrich Beck, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Johan Galtung, and Eleonora Barbieri Masini.
