John Archer To Receive The 2016 Scott Award


jaou1I’m very pleased to be able to tell you John Archer will receive this year’s Scott Award from the International Society for Research on Aggression (ISRA) for his “Significant or Life-Time Contribution to Aggression Research”.The award was initiated in 2006 and is named after John Paul Scott, one of the founders of ISRA, whose research was on aggression in animals, mainly in the 1940s and 1950s. Previous recipients are the following:

Jerry Patterson (2006)
Richard Tremblay (2008)
Len Berkowitz (2010)
Ken Dodge (2012)
Rowell Huesmann (2014)

It’s great to see John being added to this highly distinguished list of previous recipients and receiving such an impressive accolade for his major contributions to aggression research. Congratulations!

It would normally be the case that the award would be received in person by the recipient attending the ISRA conference and presenting the Scott Award Address. John, however, is unable to travel to Sydney for the 2016 ISRA meeting, so instead the plan is for him to present his Scott Award Address at UCLan so that this can be recorded and subsequently delivered at the Sydney meeting.

Colleagues are invited to attend John’s award address, which will take place on Thursday 12th May in the Mitchell & Kenyon Lecture Theatre, starting at 5.30 and ending at 6.30.
