The annual conference of the Association for Asian Studies represents a cross section of current scholarship in Asian Studies. Each year we publish abstracts (summaries of paper presentations) to help those attending the annual conference select the panels they wish to see, and to provide a summary of panels they may miss. We also hope that these abstracts will be useful to those who are unable to attend. We are particularly interested in better serving our overseas members, who cannot normally attend our meetings, but who wish to have a concise summary of the recent scholarship reflected in our program.

Please Note: AAS does not have any copies of full paper presentations.
