Regional Study Groups
NAKS is proud to sponsor the activities of small scholarly groups all around the country. Groups generally meet once a year and have their own procedures for submission and acceptance of papers. If you are interested in participating in one of these events, please check the respective websites for more information.
Note about funding: Current academic conditions make hosting conferences financially burdensome at all but the wealthiest institutions. NAKS itself is able to provide only minimal support for study group and Biennial meetings. Many graduate students and underemployed faculty also face serious financial obstacles to attending conferences. In an attempt to address these problems, keynotes at NAKS Biennial conferences, and, subject to funding availability at host institutions, invited speakers at study group meetings will be kindly asked if they are able to fund a part or a whole of their travel expenses from research accounts. It is our intent that funds made thereby available will be used to support graduate student and underemployed faculty travel. Invitations to speak at NAKS events will continue to be independent of such funding matters, however.
