The AAS-in-ASIA conferences are intended to be smaller size conferences than the typical AAS Annual Conferences.  This conference gives our members and others interested in Asian Studies, who are unable to attend the Annual Conferences held in North America, the opportunity to participate on panel sessions and network with colleagues in a more intimate setting.  Although smaller in size, these conferences include the same exciting features as the Annual Conference, including sessions, keynote speakers, book exhibits and receptions.   

Each year, AAS-in-ASIA conferences are a joint production between the Association for Asian Studies and a local host university and committee

Location: Virtual conference
Co-Host: The International Academic Forum (IAFOR)
Dates: June 29-July 1, 2020 Postponed to August 31-September 4, 2020
