WELCOME TO THE AAS CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR THE 2019 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
On behalf of the Program Committee for the Association for Asian Studies, I am pleased to issue the Call for Proposals for the AAS Annual Conference to be held March 21-24, 2019 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver, Colorado.
We are pleased to invite colleagues in Asian studies to submit proposals for Organized Panels, Roundtables, and Workshop sessions, in addition to Individual Papers proposals for the committees consideration. The program committee seeks sessions that will engage panelists and audiences in the consideration of ideas, information, and interpretations that will advance knowledge about Asian regions and, by extension, will enrich teaching about Asia at all levels. AAS Membership is not a requirement for the submission of a proposal or participation.
We have updated our Call for Proposals related webpages to try and make this process as simple and clear as possible. Please see the three-step guide below to start your submission process. The deadline for submission of all proposals and Late Developing Countries (LDC) travel grant requests is Wednesday, August 1 at 5pm Eastern Time. All proposals must be submitted electronically via the AAS electronic submission application. We will not accept proposals submitted via email. This proposal submission application will be available for submissions beginning Tuesday, May 29 through Wednesday, August 1, 2018. After the submission deadline, your proposal will be forwarded to the appropriate program committee members for review. You will find detailed instructions via the sections listed in the right hand column on this screen.
If you have any questions regarding panel participation or proposal submissions that are not answered in this Call for Proposals or the FAQ's, please contact the AAS secretariat at [email protected].
We look forward to an exciting and intellectually stimulating conference in the mile high city of Denver that reflects the dynamism of Asian studies and the AAS.
