What kind of membership do you want?

Anyone may read the the public pages of the website, but only members can add content or comments, and only members receive AFS news and announcements.

"Members" are members of the American Folklore Society. In addition to regular memberships, we have special membership categories for independent folklorists, low-income folklorists, partners of regular members, retired folklorists, and students. Members have access to the full functionality of the website and other AFS member benefits.

"Sections Only" subscribers can participate in the sections they join and in general AFS forums, but not in all aspects of the AFS members-only community. Your Sections Only registration will not be complete unless you join a Section; please allow a few days for the administrative work to make the group membership fully functional. Sections Only members pay annual dues for their Sections, but nothing for the Sections Only registration itself. See more information about AFS Sections.

"Web Only" members may participate fully—reading and posting—in the AFS online community forums and blogs. Web Only membership is free.

To renew your current or recent AFS membership, do not continue on this path! Those who have been members at any time since 2010 should always use "Sign In," even if your membership is not current.

If you would like to mail in your AFS membership, please use this print membership form.

Note: Your account will not be active until your fees have been paid and AFS staff has finalized and "approved" your registration. This process may take a few days; you will receive an email confirmation when you may sign in.
