Chapters from the books featured in the 2014 AFS Annual Meeting panel "Advances in Folklore Scholarship: New Directions in Folk Arts Scholarship," sponsored by the Women's Section, are now available online, thanks to the Ohio State University Knowledge Bank and Center for Folklore Studies.

The AFS Annual Meeting forum features two recent books that explore new directions in folk arts scholarship. Authors Elaine Eff (The Painted Screens of Baltimore, 2013) and Carol Silverman (Romani Routes: Cultural Politics and Balkan Music in Diaspora, 2014) will present their central arguments and discuss their work. Discussant Carolyn Ware will synthesize, contextualize, and assess the authors’ collective contributions to the field. Solimar Otero will chair an open discussion with an eye toward identifying advances in folklore scholarship.

The panel will be in the Nambe room at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center from 10:15–12:15 on Saturday, November 8.
