AAS2021 Social Media Guidelines and Best Practices

AAS2021 Social Media Guidelines and Best Practices

We welcome social media posts about the AAS 2021 Virtual Annual Conference! Please use the conference hashtag #AAS2021 in your posts. The AAS will also be posting throughout the event on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

We ask all conference participants to abide by the following guidelines when posting about the event on any website or social media platform:

  • Live-tweeting sessions is a great way to help your colleagues amplify their work! However, always honor requests by presenters that you NOT discuss their work publicly.
  • Similarly, never post images of slides without getting explicit permission from their creator to do so.
  • Whenever possible, spread the word about your colleagues and their work by linking to books, websites, etc. 
  • Communicate! AAS 2021 is a wonderful opportunity to make new professional connections, network, and learn about what’s new in the field of Asian Studies.
  • We ask that you be respectful and constructive in your comments about colleagues and their work.
  • Please clearly differentiate statements by the presenter from your opinions about their work. 
  • As much as possible, quote directly (using quotation marks and attribution) rather than summarizing.
  • Do not make audio or video recordings of conference proceedings. 

We look forward to a collegial and productive conference and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please contact the AAS at any time by writing to info@asianstudies.org
