Our more than 2,200 members and subscribers are scholars, teachers, and libraries at colleges and universities; professionals in arts and cultural organizations; and community members involved in folklore work.

The AFS website serves to connect the Society to its members, but also to connect folklorists to each other, the field, and the world at large.
About the American Folklore Society describes the Society and its activities, including the Society's Annual Meeting, publications, and special-interest Sections.
The Folklore Commons contains the resources that all registered users -- AFS member and non-member alike -- can generate and share: the Calendar, Career Center, Open Forums, and the Folklore Wiki, a knowledge base of any and all information with relevance to the field. Share news, views and queries in the The AFS Review; the Review's latest headines can be found on our homepage.
The site provides tools to members: for membership management, participation in private online discussion groups, and members-only privileges. For additional help, see FAQ.Visit our gallery for more information about the images that appear on this page.
