Appalachian Studies Association Bylaws
The Appalachian Studies Association was formed in 1977 by a group of scholars, teachers, and regional activists who believed that shared community has been and will continue to be important to those writing, researching, and teaching about Appalachia. The Appalachian Studies Association's mission is to encourage study, advance scholarship, disseminate information, and enhance communication between Appalachian peoples, their communities, governmental organizations, and educational institutions. Membership in the association includes a subscription to the Journal of Appalachian Studies that is published twice per year.
Studies Conference, an annual gathering
of ASA members, is held on a rotating basis at sites in Georgia, Kentucky,
North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The Conference
has several purposes: to share work in progress, to foster cooperation
between disciplines, and to stimulate new work of significance.
