2019 AFS Meeting Registration and Proposal Submission Now Open

Registration and proposal submission are now open for the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Folklore Society. Proposals are due March 31.

New this Year:

1. All preorganized session participants will submit their own proposal information directly to AFS; this step should be started by March 15. Panelists' proposals don't have to be complete by March 15; it's enough to submit a place-holder and get a submission ID number by that date.  Session chairs must submit each panelist's submission ID number with the proposal data for the session as a whole by March 31. This procedural change gives meeting participants better control over their own personal information. For more information, see the announcement in the AFS Review.

2. No registration refunds will be issued to those who must withdraw after their proposals are accepted for the meeting program. Anyone whose proposal is not accepted may request a full refund until August 31. See Annual Meeting Polices for more information.

3. New proposal options are available:

  • We invite your suggestions for sessions on "big ideas" by March 1.
  • Short presentations may be scheduled for extra feedback in “Sounding Board” sessions.
  • Choosing a 90-minute session option may allow for more scheduling flexibility.

See Types of Proposals for more information about our various standard proposal formats; if you have questions or would like to propose an alternative format for a two-hour session, contact Lorraine Walsh Cashman at lcashman@indiana.edu well before the March 31 deadline.
