AFS Review: Featured Folklorist

AFS Review Spotlights Folklorists at Work in "Featured Folklorist"

Monday, February 26, 2018   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Lorraine Cashman

What do folklorists do? AFS members can share their answers in a new feature in the AFS Review.

Our first installments will spotlight members of the 2018 Annual Meeting Planning Committee, who can tell us about the region where we will meet, as well as more about their own interests. Our "Featured Folklorists" from Western New York have a lot to say about their goals, impacts, challenges and satisfactions--including beef on weck.

Soon, though, with your help, we hope to expand our focus to include folklorists from all parts of the field. Though AFS staff lack the time to create this content themselves, you all can help shine a light on the field.

We invite you to participate by:

  • completing the questionnaire yourself
  • suggesting someone who should be featured, or questions that should be asked
  • interviewing a folklorist of your choice, asking the questions that interest you

The frequency of "Featured Folklorists" will depend on the submission rate.

Submit your suggestions for submissions for publication in the AFS Review to associate director Lorraine Walsh Cashman at
