Established in 1995 by the AAS Committee on Educational Issues and Policy and the Committee on Teaching about Asia, the Franklin R. Buchanan Prize is awarded annually to recognize an outstanding pedagogical or curriculum publication on Asia designed for any educational level, elementary through university.
Any format is acceptable, including print, CD, video, and online formats. Submissions that address underrepresented regions of Asia, as defined by the Association for Asian Studies, are encouraged.
The winning submission will reflect current scholarship, present innovative teaching strategies, and demonstrate potential to make a significant impact on the intended audience. Submissions must have been published after January 1, 2016, and include well-articulated and detailed teaching strategies in order to be competitive.
The 2018 Buchanan prize will be awarded to the author(s) of the work at the AAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., March 22-25, 2018.
The prize includes a $1,000 monetary award and a one-year membership to AAS.
Submissions are due November 1, 2017.
For more information and a submission form, please contact the Chair of the Committee.
