Oscar G. Brockett Book Prize for Dance Research
Nominations due by February 15, 2017.
The Oscar G. Brockett Book Prize for Dance Research will be awarded each year to the best book in dance published during the previous three calendar years (2014, 2015, 2016). The award carries a cash value of $1000. CORD handles the adjudication process for the award, while the Oscar G. Brockett Center for Theatre History and Criticism at the University of Texas Austin provides the monetary prize. The Center initiated this CORD Award to honor Professor Brockett and to advance its mission of recognizing the finest scholarship in theatre, dance, and performance history. Scholarly books in any area of dance may be nominated. The author need not be a member of CORD or be primarily identified with the field of dance, so long as the publication itself relates to dance.
To nominate, e-mail a letter specifying the original contribution that the work makes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put Brockett Book Prize in the subject line. Mail three copies of the work to:
Cindy Lemek, CORD Association Manager
7044 S. 13th Street
Oak Creek, WI 53154
Authors/Publishers may nominate their own work(s) or works may be nominated by CORD members. Nominations should include the nominator's relationship to the candidate, if any.
