Preparing panel proposals and PSG sponsorship (July 23 deadline)


As you prepare your AAS panel proposals, please keep the AAS’s selection criteria in mind. In addition to evidence of quality research, coherence of the panel as a whole, and clearly-written, compelling titles and abstracts, a successful panel will include panelists who are diverse in gender, institutional home, and professional rank/role.  The AAS’s website has more information here and here.

If you’re organizing a panel for the 2019 AAS and would like it to be considered for Philippine Studies Group sponsorship, please submit your panel’s complete proposal by attachment to an e-mail addressed to all of the PSG panel sponsorship committee members (see below) by July 23.  As always, the PSG sponsorship request is independent of the AAS submission process; endorsement of a selected panel does not guarantee acceptance by the AAS conference committee but is acknowledged as an expression of support from a community of peers.  Many thanks to this year’s panel sponsorship committee members, who are:

  • Paul Michael Atienza: atienza2 (at) illinois (dot) edu
  • Carinnes Gonzalez: magonzalez (at) ust (dot) edu (dot) ph
  • Sharon Quinsaat: quinsaat (at) grinnell (dot) edu
  • Michael Baran: ikebar (at) hotmail (dot) com
