Please consider joining ACSAA. Membership fees are low, and your support allows us to continue to work together to build a global dialogue about South and Southeast Asia’s rich visual culture.

Membership in ACSAA supports the wide range of activities we pursue, including the biennial symposia, this website, a directory of South and Southeast Asia art history specialists, and outreach to colleagues around the world. Members receive an annual bulletin which includes essays on the state of the field, reports from various conferences, and news bulletins about new publications and exhibitions by the membership.

Becoming a member opens up areas of the website such as the member directory and the archives, allowing access to previous newsletters and symposia programs. Membership also enables participation at the symposia, which prove to be engaged intellectual settings that bring together the top specialists in the world.
