Welcome to the ASPHS home page!

Good news! The 2017 annual meeting is back on, and will be hosted at New York University on March 16-19, 2017, with thanks to organizer Andrew H. Lee.  See the Call for Papers here.


You may notice that our page has a new look (thanks to Jim Groom and Reclaim Hosting).  We continue to incorporate current members into the online directory. In the coming weeks, members will receive instructions by email about how to log in to this site and create a profile. You will then be able to manage and renew your membership via our online directory.

Submissions are now welcomed for the 2016-2017 round of prizes. See the Best First, Bishko, and Oliveira Marques pages for more information. Congratulations to the 2015-16 prize recipients: Thomas Barton for the Best First Book (with honorable mention to Katrina Olds); Therese Martin for the Biskho Prize; and Ricardo Roque for the Oliveira Marques award.

Many thanks to outgoing General Secretary Katie Harris, incoming General Secretary Sandie Holguín, hosts David & Kathy Ringrose and Pamela Radcliffe, program organizers Vanessa de Cruz and Montserrat Miller, and keynote speaker Dennis Carr for an excellent 47th annual meeting at the Maritime Museum of San Diego!
