Cornell University’s Department of English, which administers the award for excellence in dramatic criticism endowed by Cornell alumnus, the late George Jean Nathan (1882-1958), awarded  Maya Phillips, New York Times critic at large and ATCA member, the 2020-21 George Jean Nathan Award for Dramatic Criticism.

The award is given by a prize committee including heads of the English departments at Cornell, Princeton, and Yale. Phillips, who delivered the Perspectives in Criticism address at ATCA’s 2020 virtual conference The Next Normal, was cited for her chronicling of “a tumultuous, uncertain year in live art.” Read about Phillips winning the award here
