The AJS conference offers many ways to highlight cutting-edge scholarship, promote scholarly collaboration, network with diverse colleagues, and mentor future scholars. We have over twenty different divisions that reflect the diversity of our scholarship, and this year we will be spotlighting several important themes across all divisions, including our pilot division, "Disability Studies."

AJS Honors Its Authors

The AJS invites its members to celebrate their 2022 books. You do not have to attend the conference to have your book recognized. Books will be listed in a dedicated catalog online. Your book will appear in alphabetical order by author.


The AJS is excited to launch several new subject area and conference division-based listservs to help bring AJS members and other scholars interested in these topics together to share ideas, collaborate, and discuss research. The listservs are moderated by the current Division Chairs.

Guidelines for Creating New Conference Divisions and Modifying Existing Ones

Member(s) interested in creating a new AJS division are encouraged to determine the level of support/interest among the broader membership in the proposed thematic area. Exploratory initiatives could include: organizing conference sessions under the wildcard framework, working with already existing division chairs to develop sub-division sessions dedicated to the proposed division, hosting conference gatherings with members interested in the proposed division topic, and/or a creating a letter of support signed by AJS members potentially interested in participating in the proposed division.
