The Southern Atlantic States Association for Asian and African Studies is a consortium of colleges and universities in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia established to stimulate and enhance the study of Asia and Africa. SASASAAS supports faculty teaching, funds international activities on member campuses, provides audiovisual resources, organizes programs abroad for faculty and students, and maintains linkages with other professional organizations as well as with the public schools and decision-makers in government and the private sector.

Membership in SASASAAS is institutional, not individual. Thus, the material on this and related pages is intended mainly for faculty, staff, and students at member institutions. If you represent a college or university in the southeastern United States interested in joining SASASAAS, please write to the executive director at the address given at the bottom of this page.

Next SASASAAS Annual Meeting: February 18-20, 2016, hosted by University of North Carolina Wilmington, will feature a program focused on Pakistan that will include a keynote speaker, panel discussions, dinner, music, and film. Further information forthcoming.
