Founded in 1968, the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies (AABS) is an academic non-profit organization that brings together scholars and others interested in the peoples and lands of the Baltic region. The organization:

1. Promotes research and education in Baltic Studies by sponsoring meetings and conferences, supporting publications, sustaining a program of scholarships, grants, and prizes, and disseminating news of current interest in Baltic Studies.

2. Helps build connections among a global group of scholars and others interested in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and their neighbors. Our members come from North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

3. Publishes a quarterly journal, the Journal of Baltic Studies and an annual newsletter.

4. Has been a constituent member of the American Council of Learned Societies since 1991.

Membership in the AABS is open to anyone wishing to support the scholarly purposes of the Association. AABS members receive a subscription to the quarterly Journal of Baltic Studies, reduced registration fees at select AABS conferences, and an annual newsletter of the association’s activities.
