The American Psychological Association has announced that its 2013 William James Book Award will go to Nancy L. Segal for her latest book, “Born Together — Reared Apart: The Landmark Minnesota Twin Study” (Harvard University Press, 2012). The annual award honors "work that brings together diverse subfields of psychology and related disciplines,” according to the association. “This work must provide a coherent framework that stands as a creative synthesis of theory and fact from disparate areas and demonstrates an essential underlying set of themes that serve to unify or integrate the field.” As part of the award, Segal, professor of psychology, will travel to Washington, D.C., to attend the association’s annual convention next summer, when she will lecture on her book and her research.
