AWARDS

The Banff Centre Press is pleased to congratulate Anne Flynn and Lisa Doolittle for winning the fourth annual Gertrude Lippincott award (presented by The Society of Dance History Scholars) for best article on dance published in 2000: "Dancing in the Canadian Wasteland: a Post-colonial Reading of Regionalism in the 1960s and 1970s" (Dancing Bodies, Living Histories, 2000).   The awards committee was impressed by the essay's nuanced historical approach. They say its balance between critique and contextualized analysis led to an impressive application of a postcolonial perspective to Canadian dancers.
