ATDS Publication Subvention Award


Deadline: April 20, 2013

Purpose: To help individual authors offset costs not normally covered by publishers, such as illustrations, facsimiles, accompanying multimedia materials, and permissions.  Proposals that make use of new technologies are also welcome.  The proposed project must focus on Theatre and/or Performance in the United States (recognizing that notions of “America” and the United States encompass migrations of peoples and cultures that overlap and influence one another). The award recipient will be recognized at the next annual meeting of ATDS.

Eligibility: Scholars at all stages of their careers are encouraged to apply.  Applicants must be members of ATDS.


1. An abstract (no more than 1,000 words) that describes the project and its contribution to American theatre and drama scholarship.

2. A copy of the article, or, if a book, a representative chapter.  If the project is non-print, please arrange to send a DVD, CD, or weblink.

3. A copy of the contract/letter of agreement from the journal editor or publisher indicating that the project has been accepted.  The contract or letter should specify the author’s assumption of the expenses for which the subvention is requested.

4. A detailed budget and explanation of the expenses to which the subvention would be applied.  Wherever possible, expenses should be itemized (e.g., a list of illustrations and their rights/reproduction cost).

Please submit all materials via email to Dr. Amy Hughes:  hughes@brooklyn.cuny.eduFor more information about ATDS and/or to become a member, visit

Awardee will be notified by May 30, 2013.
