Congratulations to Distinguished Professor and Centre for Drama, Theatre & Performance Studies director Kathleen Gallagher, who has been awarded the Distinguished Book Award for her work, Hope in a Collapsing World: Youth, Theatre, and Listening as a Political Alternative from the American Alliance of Theatre and Education (AATE).

Each year, the AATE honours exceptional individuals and organizations for their high-quality work in the field of theatre with and for young audiences.

“We’re proud to recognize these award recipients for their contributions to theatre and theatre education,” said Alexis Truitt, executive director of AATE. “Their accomplishments and this recognition underscores the impact of theatre with and for young audiences.”
