HYI Travel Expenses Grant For HYI Alumni to Present Their Accepted Papers at the AAS Meeting

Every year in the spring, the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) holds its annual four-day conference devoted to planned programs of scholarly papers, round table discussions and panel sessions on a wide range of issues in research and teaching, and on Asian affairs in general. The conference is one of the most important annual scholarly events in Asian Studies. For the year 2010, the AAS Annual Meeting will be held in Philadelphia (March 25-28, 2010).

As the Harvard-Yenching Institute’s (HYI) alumni, you are encouraged to attend the AAS Meeting. The HYI will host a reception at the Meeting, and this will be an excellent opportunity for networking and getting to know scholars in your research fields. The HYI will reimburse travel expenses up to $1,000 if you present a paper which has been accepted by the AAS program committee as part of the official annual meeting. You may wish to submit proposals for organized panels (or individual papers) to the AAS.

THE DEADLINE FOR AAS’ RECEIPT OF ALL PROPOSALS IS AUGUST 7, 2009
