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
