Janovics Center Award for Outstanding Humanities Research in Transnational Film and Theatre Studies 2022

The award will be offered to contributions in the fields of film or theatre studies. The award consists of an invitation to give a talk at the Center and an honorarium. 

What is awarded?
The Janovics Center is committed to supporting highly original research in screen and performing arts studies. Awarded are research articles, monographs, or edited collections published in 2022. They are expected to advance transnational research in the fields of film or theatre studies and employ a methodology that is specific to the humanities. Interdisciplinary approaches are very welcome. 

Publications must be written in English. Monographs and edited collections must be published with an internationally recognized press by the Romanian Ministry of Research. Articles are expected to be at least 6000-word long and indexed in one of the following databases: Scopus or Web of Science. 

The Center offers two awards. One for a monograph or an edited collection -- Invitation and a Euro 500 honorarium; and one for a research article -- invitation and a Euro 300 honorarium. Last year’s awardees include: Rachel S. Harris and Dan Chyutin, Casting a Giant Shadow: The Transnational Shaping of Israeli Cinema, Indiana University Press; and Andrew Higson, "The Resilience of Popular National Cinemas in Europe." Transnational Screens 12.

Who can participate?
Submissions from both emerging and experienced scholars are welcome. Authors must hold a PhD and be affiliated with a European university. The submitted publication cannot have more than two authors. In the case of two authors, at least one must fulfill the employment conditions mentioned before and the award will be split.

Deadline and Evaluation Process
The deadline for submissions is February 5, 2023. Results will be made public by March 20, 2023 on the Center’s Website. The award ceremony and talks will take place in May 2023. The Jury will include members of the Center and scholars in the fields of film and theatre studies.
