The 2012 AFS Annual Meeting will once again offer a poster exhibition, curated by Indiana University Associate Professor of Folklore Jason Baird Jackson. The exhibition will open with a reception, with presentations and discussion, then remain on display for the duration of the meeting. Three distinguished folklorists have agreed to serve as co-hosts for the exhibition opening reception, and to serve as discussants for the posters presented in each exhibition.

This year, in lieu of poster panels organized by the membership, we are soliciting individual proposals for poster presentations on one of three broad topics:

  • The Continuity and Creativity of Culture (the 2012 annual meeting theme). Discussant: Debra Lattanzi Shutika, George Mason University
  • Folklore Studies and the Digital Humanities. Discussant: Jon Kay, Traditional Arts Indiana
  • Historical and Comparative Studies in Folklore. Discussant: Dorothy Noyes, The Ohio State University

A more detailed call for papers may be found among the 2012 Annual Meeting pages; specific guidelines for poster presenters will be added later in the season.
