Welcome to Our #AAS2020 Exhibit Booth!

Hi. Welcome to our booth at the Association for Asian Studies Annual Conference.

“Exhibit booth?” you might ask?

“But the conference has been canceled!” you might exclaim.

“We’re sheltered in,” you might say.

“And travel is banned,” you might add.

“Nonsense!” we say, “We’re hosting our booth anyway!”

We’ve relocated our #AAS2020 booth venue to our blog and are inviting you to spend the next four days visiting us online. Join our editors on a virtual tour of our booth, browse new scholarship, and read excerpts from new and forthcoming releases. And the best part? We’re still offering our conference discount, and there’s no waiting in line to check out! 

Yes, you read that correctly. While we encourage you to support your local and independent bookstores during these trying times, we are still offering our standard 30 percent conference discount now through April 30 when you order any of our AAS exhibit titles from our website using coupon code AAS20.

Bookmark our conference schedule, and remember to stop by every day to meet our editors and browse our booth.
