The ASA e-newsletter is published quarterly (March, June, September, December) and has a circulation of approximately 6,000.
The deadline for submission of TEXT ADS for the e-newsletter is the first of the month preceding the date of publication. For example, a text ad which is to appear in the March e-newsletter must be received in the editor’s office by February 1. The editor reserves the right to edit all copies and to refuse ads.

The American Studies Association publishes “Employment and Fellowship Opportunities” as a service of ASA to both employers and job applicants. ASA recommends that all positions for American Studies practitioners should be advertised in “Employment and Fellowship Opportunities.” Association members should notify appropriate officials at their institutions of this service and advise them to take advantage of it.
Information in listings is assumed to reflect bona fide openings at the time the ads were placed. Applicants should contact employers for more complete information or changes in the job listing. All applications and inquiries for a position should be acknowledged promptly and courteously. The ASA expects institutions in the U.S. to adhere to Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employment practices.
We cannot accept display ads for the web or the e-newsletter. All display ads for jobs, conferences, fellowships, publications, and other items of professional interest should be submitted to our journal, American Quarterly, and/or to the American Studies Association Annual Meeting Program Book. See below for details.
