New England Chapter
NEASA serves the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Within ASA objectives, NEASA seeks to foster the study of the culture and history of New England; to bring together practitioners of the various disciplines that examine American and New England culture; and to encourage interdisciplinary scholarship, publication, and teaching in these areas at all levels and at all types of institutions. Its membership includes such constituencies as community college, college, and university faculty; secondary school teachers; undergraduate and graduate students, independent scholars; public historians, archivists, and museum curators. NEASA attempts to ensure that these constituencies are represented on NEASA's Council.
ASA members residing in the region are automatically NEASA members. Members of the ASA residing outside of the region may join the NEASA according to the ASA guidelines. Other individuals unaffiliated with the ASA may join the NEASA directly.
NEASA publishes a newsletter twice a year (NEASA Ink) and sponsors an annual two-day conference each Spring. Since 1987, NEASA has also sponsored curriculum workshops or conferences, for and by secondary school teachers. NEASA also works with high schools interested in developing American Studies (interdisciplinary Humanities and Social Studies) courses.
