Welcome to our New Website!

Welcome to the website for the Mid-Atlantic Region Association for Asian Studies (MARAAS).

MARAAS is a non-political, non-profit scholarly organization dedicated to bringing Asia and America together. Since 1971,  MARAAS has offered conferences, publications and outreach activities to an increasingly large public in the mid-Atlantic region. It facilitates contact among educators and professionals in such fields as business, law, government, and mass media. MARAAS is successful in carrying out its mission because of the individual support it receives from its membership. We very much appreciate your support.
