Kenneth Goldstein Award for Lifetime Academic Leadership

This award is named for Kenneth Goldstein (1927-1995), chair and for many years the guiding force behind the Department of Folklore and Folklife at the University of Pennsylvania. It recognizes outstanding abilities and achievement by a living scholar in academic leadership relating to folklore. "Leadership" includes folklore program development, organizational and center development, teaching, and advising. The awardee is honored at the American Folklore Society annual meeting, and is given a $500 prize, a certificate, and lifetime membership in the Society.

The next review of nominations will take place in 2015. To nominate a candidate for the award, please submit (as a single PDF) a cover letter and supporting materials detailing the rationale for the candidate's nomination, by March 1, 2015, to AFS Executive Director Timothy Lloyd at lloyd.100@osu.edu.

The entire nomination package, including the cover letter, should be no longer than 10 pages. Supporting materials can include a summary of scholarly positions; publications and other scholarly productions; professional and university service; degrees; awards, grants, and honors,
letters from colleagues, former and current students, syllabi and course descriptions, and other evidence that speaks to excellence in program development and leadership, teaching, and advising.
