Good morning, and welcome to the first full day of AAS 2017 in Toronto! A few of the notable happenings in the hours to come:

Our Exhibit Hall will be open on the Lower Concourse level (today’s hours: 8:30am-5:00pm). 

Screenings at the AAS Film Expo continue between 8:30am and 8:00pm.

Between 8:30 and 9:00am, join us for a coffee break in the Vide lobby on the Lower Concourse level, take a spin through the Exhibit Hall, and then make your way to the Grand Ballroom Centre by 9:00 for the Awards Ceremony and Presidential Address. AAS President Laurel Kendall will give a talk titled “Things Fall Apart: Material Religion and the Problem of Decay with examples from Korea, Vietnam, and Myanmar.” See the list of AAS Book Prize winners here.

Panel sessions begin at 10:30am and run until 7:15pm. Special panels on today’s schedule include an Asia Beyond the Headlines discussion on “Participatory Publics: Civil Society, Pluralist Discourses, and People Power in Asia,” as well as the annual “JAS at AAS” roundtable, the topic of which is “The Flow of Migration beyond the Nation.”

At 7:30pm, head to the Grand Ballroom East for the AAS Member Reception. Grab a few of your friends and snap a group shot in our new Selfie Booth—and don’t forget to tag your post with the #AAS2017 hashtag!

A reminder to graduate students who qualify for travel stipends that those can be picked up in the Vide lobby on the Lower Concourse level during registration hours (today: 8:30am-6:30pm).
