The planning committee for the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Folklore Society announced in Buffalo that "Community Driven" is the theme for the next AFS meeting. Read the full statement.

As the committee expresses it, "Throughout the meeting, we will explore what it means for the folklore world to be of, by and for the people—in other words, community driven. We welcome contributions that consider partnerships, local responses and resistance, work that grows from common traditions and fosters new connections and grassroots curations of action and sustainability....We see this conference as an opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with our community peers in sharing ideas, knowledge and resources, building connections and empowerment, and breaking down walls."

The organizing committee invites you to interpret and explore this wide-ranging topic in the form of papers, panels, forums, films, diamond and new types of presentations. More information about how to submit proposals will be distributed in January, in advance of the proposal submission window of February 1 through March 31; proposals on this theme are encouraged, but not required.  Contact lcashman@indiana.edu to discuss alternative presentation formats.
