by Shaun Manning on June 22, 2012

The Sarah Siddons Audio Files by Judith PascoeKimberly Jannarone’s Artaud and His Doubles and Judith Pascoe’s The Sarah Siddons Audio Files each received commendation in New York University’s Joe A. Callaway Prize for Best Book on Drama or Theatre. These two University of Michigan Press books, along with Daniel O’Quinn’s Entertaining Crisis in the Atlantic Imperium, 1770-1790 from Johns Hopkins University Press, received honorable mentions in the biennial contest, while Martin Puchner took home top prize for The Drama of Ideas: Platonic Provocations in Theater and Philosophy published in 2011 by Oxford.

The Callaway judges called Jannarone’s book “a provocative, meticulously researched inquiry into the theatrical practices and ideological complexities of one of the most influential figures of twentieth-century theater,” and praised Sarah Siddons for “bringing the insights of media archaeology to bear on theater history.”

Congratulations to our authors and the other winners!
