The meeting will be AFS's 127th annual gathering. For the ISFNR, which holds a Congress every 3-5 years, it will be the 17th Congress since the organization's founding in 1962. It will also be ISFNR's first Congress in the Western Hemisphere.
The meeting will
offer all those in attendance--not just scholars of narrative--many
opportunities for greater international learning and engagement. A program committee composed of members of both societies will review proposals for individual presentations and organized sessions at this meeting. Insofar as possible, we
will integrate ISFNR and AFS member participation in conference sessions, according to topic, approach, or geography.
