The American Society for Theatre Research Recognizes Tufts Faculty and Alumni
Several Tufts community members were honored for their contributions to scholarship in theatre and performance studies
The American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR) is committed to fostering global scholarship on historical and contemporary theatre and performance. ASTR sponsors several awards, grants, fellowships, and prizes to support outstanding scholarship in theatre and performance studies. In 2022, two Tufts faculty members and three Tufts alums were recognized by ASTR.
Noe Montez, Chair of the Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies Department, received honorable mention in the Translation Prize category for his edit of Nothing to Do with Love and Other Plays by Santiago Loza, edited in collaboration with Samuel Buggeln and translated by Samuel Buggeln and Ariel Gurevich. Kareem Khubchandani, Associate Professor of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, received honorable mention in the Sally Banes Publication Prize category for Ishtyle: Accenting Gay Indian Nightlight. Danielle Rosvally, PhD '16, and Trevor Boffone received funding for their project "Yassified Shakespeare: Gender Performance and Critical Shax-Drag" through The ASTR Collaborative Research Award. Dassia Posner, PhD '07, won the ASTR Translation Prize, for Three Loves For Three Oranges: Gozzi, Meyerhold, Prokofiev, in collaboration with Kevin Bartig and Maria De Simone. Daphne Lei, PhD '99, was awarded the Distinguished Scholar Award.
"It's so exciting to see the scholarship and accomplishments of our faculty and graduate students celebrated by the American Society for Theatre Research," says Montez. "The PhD program in Theatre and Performance Studies has a long history of seeing its faculty, graduate students, and alumni recognized by the organization for their research and creative endeavors, but this year it was truly heartening to see such a widespread acknowledgment of the work that we do."
