Additional Requirements

Members will use their ASA username and password to enter the All Academic site. All proposal submitters and session participants must be current members of the ASA or an affiliated international American studies association, at the time of submission. Affiliated international scholars who are not ASA members may contact the Office of the Executive Director by January 24th to receive a guest account that will allow you to log in and submit a proposal. Read the FAQs for additional details.

IMPORTANT: ALL FULL PANEL SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2024 ANNUAL MEETING ARE IN-PERSON. If panelists qualify for an accommodation based on medical condition, disability, incarceration, or special circumstances (e.g. prohibition on international travel), in-person sessions with up to 5 persons may include one virtual accommodation participant and sessions with 6 or more persons may include two virtual participants. The chair (or submitter) must be in-person and manage virtual links. Please read and follow the guidelines carefully on All Academic, and use the “additional information” space to state the name of person(s) requesting virtual accommodation and reason they cannot attend in-person. After February 5, no changes from in-person to virtual will be allowed, except in the event of documented emergencies.
