|Diamond Session Proposal Form|
Please use this form to propose a Diamond session--a panel of Diamond presentations--for the AFS 2011 Annual Meeting. You must submit your proposal no later than March 31, 2011.
On the basis of their increasing
popularity among scholars and with the inspiration of a successful experiment
undertaken at the 2010 Annual Meeting in Nashville, the American Folklore
Society invites organized session proposals in what we are
calling the Diamond format, a formalized presentation genre structured by time
presentations are seven minutes long and are organized around 21 slides that
are set to advance automatically every 20 seconds.
Organized Diamond sessions will include between six
and ten presentations on a common theme. All Diamond sessions
will be constructed with an initial seven minutes allotted for preparation and
introduction of the session as a whole, seven minutes for each Diamond
presentation, and the balance of the available time dedicated to discussion of
the full set of presentations. At the discretion of the session chair, the discussion
time may be used for response by a formal discussant, open "full room”
questions and answers, break-out time in which presenters can confer with
interested audience members, or a combination of these discussion formats.
You must attach Word documents to this form with portions of your proposal information. Before you begin your submission, please read the form instructions below and then prepare the Word documents you need so you can attach them to the form later in the process.
Form questions that are underlined have explanations or instructions that will appear when you hover your cursor over the question.
