The de la Torre Bueno Prize®2022 Bueno

The de la Torre Bueno Prize® is awarded annually to a book published in the English language that advances the field of dance studies. Qualified submissions are not restricted to any particular methodology or approach, but should introduce quality dance studies scholarship to a wider audience. Named after José Rollin de la Torre Bueno, the first university press editor to develop a list of titles in dance studies, the de la Torre Bueno Prize has recognized scholarly excellence in the field since 1973. It carries a cash purse of $1000.

All members of DSA are eligible for this prize. Books translated into the English language are acceptable, so long as they have been published during the Prize year. Edited volumes consisting mainly of newly published essays are eligible. Books consisting in their entirety of previously published essays, reviews, or articles are not eligible. The award is for works published in the previous calendar year (2023).

NOTE: Titles may only be submitted for either the Brockett or the Bueno awards, not both.
NOTE: DSA membership is a pre-requisite of eligibility for consideration.
