Thank you for your interest in an AAAS membership! On this page, you will find our current membership categories and the respective annual dues.

New AAAS members also become members in the European Association for American Studies (EAAS) and receive one copy of our conference proceedings from a previous year.

Application Process

Decisions on new memberships are made by the board of the AAAS. A current list of members is published online and annually in the Newsletter of the AAAS.

Please download the membership application form and send it together with a Curriculum Vitae (focusing on your work or interests within American Studies) to the current Secretary of the AAAS. We will then get in touch with you.
