DISE Professor Philip Howard Receives the 2024 CATR Award for Best Book

Published: 20 June 2024

The new book by DISE Professor Philip Howard – Performing Postracialism: Reflections on Antiblackness, Nation, and Education through Contemporary Blackface in Canada, has won the Canadian Association for Theatre Research’s (CATR) Ann Saddlemyer Award.

This annual award goes to the best book published in English or French in a given year that constitutes a substantial contribution to the field of drama, theatre, and performance studies in what is now known as Canada. Performing Postracialism is an interdisciplinary study, spanning Black Studies, Education, Cultural Studies, and Performance Studies, that examines instances of contemporary blackface in Canada as manifestations of the peculiar formations of antiblackness in the Canadian nation state and its educational institutions.

The award was announced at the CATR annual conference on Thursday, June 20, 2024 at the Université de Montréal.
