The Southeast Regional Conference of the Association for Asian Studies (SEC/AAS) is a non-political, non-profit scholarly organization dedicated to promoting the study of Asia in the southeastern region* of the United States. To that end, the SEC/AAS has held (since 1962) an annual three-day meeting featuring scholarly panels, teacher workshops, and book exhibits; sponsors undergraduate and graduate student paper prize competitions; and publishes annually the Southeast Review of Asian Studies (SERAS) that highlights the scholarly activities of Asianists in the Southeast, as well as Occasional Papers. Membership in SEC/AAS is open to all individuals and institutions interested in Asia. Regular members are entitled to participate in SEC/AAS activities, to receive SERAS, and to receive all mailings about the annual conference and other conference-related matters. Please note that membership is required of all conference participants.
Individual dues are $20/year, or $10/year for students and pre-college teachers (without the journal).
