|Outstanding Book Award|
The award for Outstanding Book is given on the basis of the study's potential to interrupt, change and/or challenge theatre practice and pedagogy - often emphasizing the interconnectedness of pedagogy and practice. We invite submissions of books or book-length studies about theatre administration, performance spaces, movement, voice, acting, as well as anthologies providing critical teaching materials in theatre arts and performance. A nominated book must have the copyright date of the year prior the year of the ATHE annual conference. (For instance, nominees for the 2016 book award should have a copyright date of 2015.)
Nominators must send a copy of the book to the chair of the sub-committee as well as copies to each of the members of the sub-committee. No letters of support are necessary, but the nominator must provide contact information for the authors and publishers. Self-nomination is permitted. View the subcommittee here. For questions or concerns, contact Vice President for Awards Jocelyn L. Buckner. The awardee will receive $400 for conference registration and one night in the conference hotel.
Deadline: The deadline for 2016 submissions has passed.
The 2015 Outstanding Book award recipient is Suk-Young Kim for her work, DMZ Crossing: Performing Emotional Citizenship Along the Korean Border, published by Columbia University Press. View an interview with Kim here.
