Just a reminder that AAS’s deadline for proposals for the 2020 meeting in Boston is coming up! I just now circulated a separate note about how to apply for PSG sponsorship; that deadline is even earlier.
If anyone has panel ideas/wants to put out a call to others, feel free to send me a message and ask me to circulate it here–I haven’t yet received any such messages. If you are interested in organizing or joining a themed panel with scholars who aren’t working on the Philippines, check out the AAS’s “sessions seeking participants” and “participants seeking sessions” fora. Also, please take note of submission requirements, AAS’s diversity requirements for panels, the guidelines for requesting an “AAS International Exchange Travel Grant” for someone on your panel (a citizen of and who works in the Philippines or another non-OECD Asian nation), the one-appearance rule, and other AAS requirements and guidelines, all on the AAS’s call for proposals website: https://conference.asian-studies.org/conference/program/call-for-proposals/
Let me know if you have any questions or if I can assist in any way!

Association for Asian Studies
2020 Annual Conference – Boston, MA
We are pleased to invite colleagues in Asian studies to submit proposals for Organized Panels, Roundtables, Workshops, and Individual Paper proposals.
Additionally, new for 2020, the AAS is also now accepting roundtable, workshop and Lightning Session Presentation proposals in Digital Technology.
The program committee seeks sessions 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.
The 2020 AAS Annual Conference will take place in Boston, Massachusetts from March 19-22 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel and the Hynes Convention Center.
Proposal Submission Deadline:
Tuesday, August 6, 2019, 5:00pm EDT
All proposals should be submitted via the online abstract submission application link posted on the AAS Call for Proposals webpage. Please make sure to review ALL instructions and guidelines carefully before submitting a proposal.
