AFS Review: Notes

2019 AFS Meeting: New Directions in Folklore Section, Baltimore Edition

Friday, September 27, 2019   (0 Comments)

By Andrew Peck, convener, Annamarie O'Brien, co-convener, and John E. Price, editor--

The New Directions in Folklore (NDiF) section is once again primed to have a big presence at the annual meeting, with section events, sponsored panels, and a wide variety of related sessions.  The  Business Meeting and the New Directions Forum are both happening on Saturday, October 19, and are open to all who are interested.  In addition, we have co-sponsored Friday's three-session event, "Connecting Collections and Communities," and Thursday's "Perspectives through Partnerships."

NDiF members are participating across a wide variety of other panels and forums on all three days, and as an added bonus, we have teamed up with the Graduate Student and Young Professionals Section to provide MEME LORE'D ribbons for all members who want one. The AFS hashtag this year is #AFSAM19, and we encourage the use of social media for all NDiF events, but be sure to double-check with individual sessions or presentations.
