The T’ang Studies Society is happy to announce that it will once again offer sponsorship for one or more deserving panels that addresses topics related to the study of the Tang dynasty at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Association for Asian Studies currently planned for Seattle, WA. This grant is intended to defray some of the costs of society members presenting Tang-relevant research at the AAS Annual Meeting, including travel and registration expenses. Funding levels are determined during the review process. Scholars at any stage of their careers are eligible.


Note that AAS has recently removed the panel sponsorship option from its panel proposal form. In line with that, the Society will entertain panel sponsorship applications AFTER panels have been accepted for inclusion in the AAS Annual Meeting program.


APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED: October 30, 2020. Recipients will be notified by November 30, 2020.
