ASN Conferences & Events

To give scholars of American Studies a chance to come together to network, share research, and develop joint projects

The ASN Annual Conference gives scholars of American Studies, both from China and the greater Asian region, a chance to come together to network, share research, and develop joint projects.  Participants come from universities throughout China, and graduate students are also encouraged to submit papers for graduate students panels, and attend other sessions of the conference to further their own scholarship. Distinguished speakers from the US are also invited to participate as speakers and panelists.

The conference rotates annually around China, and has been held in Chengdu, Changchun, Kunming, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bejiing, and Wuxi.
