BAFTSS Book of the Year award
Professor Peter Stanfield short listed.
The British Association for Film Television and Screen Studies has announced its nominations for its first annual awards, and Professor Peter Stanfield’s book is one of five short listed titles for their prestigious Book of the Year award.
The BAFTSS awards committee says, ‘Considering that this is the first time the competition has run, the quality and quantity of submissions has been remarkable, and constitutes a true testimony of the high calibre research undertaken within our field. There were 25 submissions for the book award category, 14 for the peer reviewed essay category, and 20 in the category for best student essay. We congratulate all those who have submitted work: unfortunately we can only acknowledge a fraction of the excellent material that we have received and selecting a shortlist proved extremely difficult. A film practice research award will be added as of 2013.’
The winners will be publicly announced at the AGM on 20 September.
