Individual Paper Proposal Form

Please use this form to propose an individual paper for the AFS 2011 Annual Meeting. You must submit your proposal no later than March 31, 2011.

We will accept proposals for individual papers on any focused topic that relates to folklore. The program committee will group accepted papers into panels.

Required materials: Each individual paper presenter must submit her registration, registration fee payment, and an individual proposal form, including long and short abstracts for the paper.


You must attach a Word document to this form containing your short abstract. Before you begin your submission, please prepare the Word document you need so you can attach it 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.

200 of 200 characters remaining
Keywords will help us schedule and index your paper, if it is accepted for the meeting program. Put no more than one topic in each field.
Please provide a 500-word abstract for your presentation in the space below, which will be forwarded to the Program Committee for evaluation.

Do not begin the abstract with the title of your presentation.

The review criteria are: 1) A clear thesis or analytical statement; 2) A coherent argument; 3) An indication of familiarity with previous research; and 4) The session's contribution to a deeper understanding of the theme of this year’s meeting, or to one or more of the core concepts of our field, such as art, context, folk, genre, group, identity, performance, text, or tradition.
Your 100-word abstract will be printed in the program book if your presentation is accepted for the meeting program.

In the text box below, please paste the text of the short abstract. Include only the text of the abstract itself—no paper title.

The text box will not preserve bold, italic, or underline. If your text contains these print enhancements, please add a note at the end of the abstract (eg, “Italicize: Journal of American Folklore”).

If it seems that nothing happens when you hit Submit, look for an error message at the top of the form. You may have missed a required field. If that doesn't work, request a new math question.

You will go to a confirmation screen when your proposal is successfully submitted. If you have further questions during business hours, call 614-292-4715.
