The Association for Asian Studies (AAS) invites submissions for the Franklin R. Buchanan Prize.
Established in 1995 by the AAS Committee on Educational Issues and Policy and the Committee on Teaching about Asia, the prize is awarded annually to recognize an outstanding curriculum publication on Asia designed for any educational level, elementary through university.
The winning submission will reflect current scholarship, present innovative teaching strategies, and make a significant impact on the intended audience. Submissions must have been published after January 1, 2012, and include extensive teaching strategies in order to be considered. Various formats are acceptable, including print, CD, video, and online formats. Submissions that address underrepresented regions of Asia are encouraged.
The 2014 Buchanan Prize will be awarded to the author of the work at the 2014 AAS Annual Conference in Philadelphia. The prize includes a $1,000 monetary award and a one-year membership to AAS. Submissions are due NOVEMBER 1, 2013.
