|ATHE 2020 Excellence in Editing Award|
The Award for Excellence in Editing honors edited scholarship that contributes significantly to the fields of theatre and/or performance studies and that is marked by skillful editorial shaping. The Award for Excellence in Editing is given both for Individual Achievements in Editing (for a single project) and for Sustained Achievement in Editing (for work edited over an extended period of time). The honor for Individual Achievement is awarded in even-numbered years; the honor for Sustained Achievement is awarded in odd-numbered years.
This year, the ATHE Excellence in Editing Award will honor an Individual Achievement.
For the Individual Achievement in Editing award, individual projects include, but are not limited to, a special issue of journal, an edited book, or an anthology. Projects with copyright dates from the two years preceding the award year are eligible (For instance, nominees for the 2020 Individual Achievement award should have a copyright date of 2018 or 2019). Any book many be considered for only one ATHE award (either Outstanding Book or Individual Achievement in Editing).
The winner will be contacted in May and a public announcement will be made in early June. The awardee will receive $400 for conference registration and one night in the conference hotel.
The nomination period for the 2020 award is closed.
