25 April 2016

Dr Helen Piper, Senior Lecturer in Television Studies, has won the award for Best Monograph at the 2016 British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS). Helen's book, The TV Detective: Voices of Dissent in Contemporary Television, published by I.B. Tauris, was described by the panel as 'a riveting read, sometimes waspishly amusing, adept and flexible in its approach, and always sharp'. It was also praised for the case it presents for 'the wider significance of television in the nation's psyche'. More details of the book can be found here and of the 2016 BAFTSS awards here. Congratulations Helen!
