The American Studies Association works with each conference host to provide an open space near annual meeting rooms for supervised children to play. This space is supported by conference registration fees and will be available during all meeting hours.

Member-parents, guardians, or sitters are welcome to bring toys to share and to contribute to making the space fun and safe for all kids to play.

The ASA also plans to implement child care services for attendees at the ASA annual meeting beginning in 2019.  Do you plan to take your children with you to the conference?  If you are interested in conference childcare options, please check the box on the proposal submission form.  We will finalize the options based on your interest.  You will have an opportunity to select an available option on the conference registration form.
