A win-win initiative at the South Asian Studies Association conference, Orlando (USA), April 3-5, 2009

by , 24 Feb 2009 | in conferences | no comments yet

Today I have received a clever invitation from the the 3rd annual conference of South Asian Studies Association, which will be hosted by the University of Central Florida, Orlando (USA), April 3-5, 2009.

They have thought of a nice way to make some money, advertising those publishers who cannot go to Orlando, and students, besides the usual way of selling a display advertisement in their conference program.They will display materials for publishers in return for the right to sell them at the end of the conference and keep the proceeds. Unsold materials will be donated to their graduate student volunteers.

As usual, the book exhibit will be set up in the same space where twice daily 30-minute coffee breaks will be held to ensure plenty of traffic and browsing time and they will acknowledge the donation in the program.

I will surely send them the Journal of Asia Women Studies book.
