Plan your stay

Welcome Appalachian Studies Association! Asheville is a vibrant city located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Award-winning restaurants and eclectic boutiques line the streets of downtown. A dynamic live music scene fills local concert venues, and craft breweries (more per capita than nearly any other U.S. city) pour pints of unique local beers. Come early or stay late and explore the wealth of things to do in Asheville while you're here for your 2019 annual conference!

The 42nd Annual ASA Conference will meet in Asheville to explore “AppalachA’ville.”

The Appalachian Studies Association conference will consider the Appalachian region through the development of its population centers, from quiet villages to fast-growing cities. Bring your interests, your curiosity, your expertise and your experience; together we will explore AppalachA’ville.
