JUDITH KASE COOPER HONORARY RESEARCH AWARD

The AATE Judith Kase Cooper Honorary Research Award is given to honor distinguished scholars who have contributed significantly to the development of theory and research in the field of drama/theatre and education.  Nominees must have made significant contributions to the body of research in drama/theatre education internationally.  The focus of the award is on cumulative work accomplished over a number of years rather than on one study. Additional information may be found here: http://www.aate.com/award-descriptions#aate-research.

 

Nomination Process

Current AATE members may begin the nomination process by e-mailing the Research Awards Chair at researchawards@aate.com by December 1st, 2019 to indicate their intent to nominate a candidate for this award.  

 

A complete nomination package will consist of the nominee's current curriculum vitae and a minimum of four letters of support testifying to the nominee’s significant international impact on the field’s research.  At least three letters must be from AATE members with established research reputations; at least one must be from an established scholar whose primary area of inquiry lies outside the field of theatre education or theatre for young audiences.  Additional required materials and the deadline for their receipt will be provided upon receipt of the intent to nominate e-mail.  

 

The nominee may or may not be aware of the nomination.  The Research Award Chair and jurors will hold all nominations in confidence.  The nominators will be informed of the results by the Research Award Chair.

 

Award winners will be honored at the annual AATE conference to be held July 29-August 2nd, 2020 in Phoenix, AZ.
