It’s time to plan for 2019 AAS-in-Asia! The Association for Asian Studies’ annual Asia meeting will take place in Bangkok, July 1-4 2019. Proposals are due Oct. 22. The website with full information is here:
Please circulate the call broadly to your networks; I hope we see a lot of Philippine studies in the conference program!
A few additional notes about preparing to apply for AAS-in-Asia 2019:
–Please note that for this conference, no individual paper proposals will be considered, only panel proposals and roundtable proposals will be considered. (Full details are in the call for proposals; see link above.)
–I am happy to circulate via this venue messages from those seeking to form a panel or roundtable with others. If you have an idea for a panel or roundtable and are seeking one or more panelists to join, let me know if you’d like me to circulate a message here about it. Also feel free to send me a message if you have a paper that you’d like to try to fit on a panel with others. Do not feel obliged of course–this is simply one of the many ways you might try to connect with others. You can reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
—PSG sponsorship of proposals: If you would like the PSG to consider sponsoring your panel or roundtable proposal, please send a full draft proposal to me by October 10 (before AAS’s deadline). PSG sponsorship is not a guarantee of acceptance, and does not substitute for applying directly to the AAS by its deadline, but PSG sponsorship is an expression of support from a community of peers, which the program committee takes that into consideration when making its decisions. If you have any questions–or if you are ready to send a proposal for consideration for PSG sponsorship–please e-mail me at email@example.com.
—Travel Subsidies from AAS: All panel and roundtables proposals are eligible to request travel subsidies from AAS for a single panelist; these requests must be made at the same time the proposal is submitted to the AAS on Oct 22; no late requests will be considered.

Let me know if you have any questions. Happy panel- and roundtable-forming!
