BAAS Conference Organisation Support
BAAS invites scholars in any field of American Studies to apply for funding to support the organization and running of conferences, colloquia, and/or conference-related activity. It is not meant to fund the applicant’s attendance at a conference. BAAS has access to these funds through membership subscriptions, publications, and particular grants-in-aid from other sources.
The Conferences Sub-Committee will prioritize applications that fund postgraduate attendance and that publicize BAAS, the Journal of American Studies, and U.S. Studies Online at the event. Please note that the Conferences fund is not primarily intended to defray costs for visiting speakers, catering, or publicity. BAAS is committed to promoting best practice in matters of equality and diversity and applicants are expected to demonstrate similar consideration when submitting bids to this scheme.
The closing deadline for the next round of applications is 1 November 2017 and more information can be found on the BAAS website: http://www.baas.ac.uk/project/baas-conference-organisation-support/
