AAS is now accepting nominations for 2022 Book Prize competitions

Call for Nominations

To recognize outstanding scholarship and contribution to the field, the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) annually awards several publication prizes, presented at the Awards Ceremony during the Annual Conference (next coming up March 24-27, 2022 in Honolulu, HI).

AAS is now accepting nominations for 2022 Book Prize competitions, with a submission deadline of July 15, 2021. All nominations must be submitted by book publishers, using the book prize nomination forms available via the AAS website.

Please note that July 15 is the deadline for nomination form submission; books should be sent as soon as possible once the AAS has confirmed receipt of the nomination, but can arrive after that date.

If you’re an author and would like your book considered for nomination, please contact your press representative—do not mail books directly to prize committee members or the AAS Secretariat, as they will not be considered.
