Nominations for SFU’s 2008 Nora and Ted Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy close on Jan. 31.

The prize is awarded annually to a recipient whose work presents new ways of looking at the world that are daring and creative.

Whether they be an SFU student, staff member, academic or community member with links to the university, prize winners are selected for decidedly unconventional and distinctly untraditional work that provokes a wide audience.

The 2007 winner was Bruce Alexander, an SFU professor emeritus of psychology, for his highly controversial work on drugs and human addiction.

The prize winner receives a cash award of $5,000 and makes a public presentation at the Wosk Centre for Dialogue.

Whether you’re planning a nomination package or would simply like to suggest a nominee, contact the committee at vpacad@sfu.ca.
