The AAS Conference deadline is around the corner—August 6th! Folks sending in individual papers as well as those sending in organized panel proposals should be mindful of the AAS deadline as well as their specific online submission process that can be found on their website http://www.asian-studies.org/conference/Call-for-Papers.htm
Those who have organized a Philippine-themed panel and wish to be considered for PSG sponsorship, please don’t forget to send a duplicate copy of your proposal (panel abstract + individual paper abstracts) to me firstname.lastname@example.org as well as to Bernardita Churchill email@example.com by Aug 3rd Monday.
As always, the PSG sponsorship request is independent of the AAS submission process; endorsement of a selected panel does not guarantee acceptance by the AAS conference committee but is acknowledged as an expression of support from a community of peers. Since PSG started this in 2010, we’ve had a 100% rate of success in PSG sponsored panels. As always, we seek panels that have well-focused/rigorous question/topic/issue, demonstrate diversity (a mix of junior & senior scholars, disciplines, institutional affiliations across regions/countries, etc.). Panels organized by graduate students/junior scholars is also a plus.
If unable to seek sponsorship, we strongly encourage you to submit directly to the AAS by August 6th. Many Philippine-themed panels that did not go through the sponsorship route have consistently been accepted by the AAS over the years so we encourage direct submissions by all!
See the Conference page on our website for additional information, including how graduate students/junior scholars with accepted papers can apply for PSG Travel Funds http://blogs.shu.edu/philippinestudies/philippine-panels-at-the-aas/
