Robert A. Hackenberg Lecture

The Robert A. Hackenberg Lecture was established by family and friends in 2008.   The Lecture is held bi-annually at the Annual Meetings of the SfAA, and features a prominent applied social scientist in mid-career.  Prof. Hackenberg was internationally-known for his research in the application of the social sciences to medical care, population dynamics, and economic development.  Among many other honors, he was selected by the Society to receive (along with his spouse, Beverly) the prestigious Bronislaw Malinowski Award in 1998.
