The Society for Queer Asian Studies (SQAS) plans to sponsor two panels focused on queer Asian themes at the 2023 Association for Asian Studies (AAS) Annual Conference, February 17-18 online, and March 16-19 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Sponsorship is possible for one online panel and one in-person panel respectively.
SQAS sponsorship means endorsement from SQAS. It does not guarantee your panel will be accepted, nor does it come with any funding to support conference attendance.
To apply for sponsorship, please submit a proposal (a single document with a panel abstract plus individual paper abstracts following AAS requirements) for your complete panel to
Deadline: Thursday, July 29 (any time zone)
Results announced: August 5 or 6
This will give us time to review the panels and sponsored panels time to add SQAS sponsorship to their proposal before the AAS deadline of August 9.
