The AAS is aware that some scholars located in the PRC were pressured into withdrawing from their scheduled online presentations at the recently concluded 2022 Annual Conference. We are currently working to determine the number of individuals involved and the scope of actions affecting conference participants. The AAS firmly supports the right of scholars worldwide to take part in the free exchange of ideas and research through conferences and other forms of academic cooperation.
