The purpose of the Section on Asia and Asian America is to enhance cooperation between Asia, America, and the global community. The Section aims to strengthen the theoretical and methodological aspects of Asian and Asian American Studies.
The Section promotes Asia and Asian American Studies within sociology by organizing paper sessions, roundtables, and social events at the annual meetings of the ASA. It recognizes distinguished scholarship with best book and student paper awards.
In addition, the Section publishes a newsletter that includes section news, calls for paper, grant opportunities, job announcements, notices of recent publications, and other pertinent information.
Participating in sections is a great way to become involved in ASA! Membership in the Asia & Asian America Section is open to all members of the American Sociological Association. We invite all sociologists who are interested in Asian or Asian American studies to join our section.
