Ballard Institute Director awarded research prize from the Institut International de la Marionnette

On September 19, 2011, the Institut International de la Marionnette in Charleville-Mézières, France (France’s premiere puppet institute) awarded Ballard Institute Director John Bell the “Prix de la Recherche” (research prize) for his book American Puppet Modernism (published by Palgrave/Macmillan in 2008). This award comes soon after Dr. Bell was given the Jalal Sattari prize at Iran’s Third International Traditional-Ritual Performances Seminar in July for his essay “Shalako Puppets and Nineteenth-Century Ritual,” which appears in American Puppet Modernism.
