Call for Proposals: 2023 Annual Conference Late-Breaking Sessions

The AAS invites proposals for late-breaking sessions to be held at the 2023 Annual Conference online and in Boston, Massachusetts. Late-breaking panels and roundtables provide a forum for engaging in dialogue on current events that affect our perspectives on and work in the Asian region; proposed sessions should focus on emerging data or trending topics from the past six months.

The AAS will accept a maximum of three late-breaking sessions for the 2023 conference. Only organized panels and roundtables are eligible for consideration—no individual papers will be accepted. All conference sessions are 90 minutes in length. Individuals already on the program are welcome to participate in a late-breaking session.

All proposals must be submitted by 11:59pm Eastern Time on Monday, January 9, with decision notices sent to session participants later in January.

While the Program Committee encourages proposals on all timely topics, it especially encourages sessions that will discuss:

  • Feminism and gender politics
  • Race and systemic racism
  • The COVID-19 pandemic in Asia
  • U.S. political impact on the region
  • Gaming and addiction
  • Migration and displacement
  • Pollution and health in the region
  • Shifting demographics in the region
  • Other late-breaking topics
