Karen Fricker, lecturer in contemporary theatre at Royal Holloway, has been awarded the Jean-Cleo Godin award for the best article in Canadian theatre studies published in the French language last year. Dr. Fricker is the first anglophone scholar to have been awarded this prize, which is given by the Canadian Association for Theatre Research/ Association Canadienne de la recherche théatrâle.
The article, ‘À l’Heure zéro de la culture (dés)unie. Problèmes de représentation dans Zulu Time de Robert Lepage et Ex Machina.’ (‘The Zero Hour of Cultural (dis)unity: Problems of representation in Robert Lepage and Ex Machina’s Zulu Time’), was published in issue 11.2 of Globe: Revue internationale d'études québécoises and translated by Rémy Charest.
Dr. Fricker will travel to Ottawa in May to collect this award thanks to the Prix du Québec, a travel grant from the British Association of Canadian Studies.
