Waverly Duck wins Scholarly Achievement Award for book ‘Tacit Racism’

Waverly Duck, an associate professor in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, won the North Central Sociological Association's Scholarly Achievement Award for "Tacit Racism."

A three-member committee of association judges called it a “wonderful piece of research and scholarship.”

The book, co-authored with Anne Warfield Rawls, lays out the many ways in which racism is coded into the everyday social interactions of Americans.

“Tacit Racism,” published by University of Chicago Press, will be honored during an awards ceremony at the group's April 1-2 meeting in Indianapolis.
