Councils

Four regional councils operate within the Association for Asian Studies (AAS). Created in 1970, these councils represent the interests of scholars working in their respective geographical areas.

Collectively, the four AAS area councils and the Council of Conferences serve as the major policy body for the Association of Asian Studies, providing liaison between the Board of Directors and the members at large.

Please see the individual council pages for more information about grant programs, book prizes, and other initiatives they offer:
