AFS Review: Calls for Submissions

CFP: AFS@MLA "The Persistence of Folklore"

Thursday, March 5, 2020   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Alexandra Sanchez

The upcoming conference for the Modern Language Association (MLA) will be held January 7–10, 2021 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The theme of the 2021 MLA Annual Convention will be Persistence.

The American Folklore Society invites proposals for papers on a panel titled "The Persistence of Folklore." Despite persistent claims that folklore is disappearing in the modern world—both as an academic discipline and as an expression of culture—folklore persists and endures. Accordingly, AFS seeks papers that use relevant case studies to demonstrate the vitality and strength of both our discipline and the folk groups that we study. Because this is a guaranteed session sponsored by the American Folklore Society, we are particularly interested in proposals from AFS members.

If interested in participating in this panel, send a 300-word abstract and brief CV to Jim Deutsch at, by March 21, 2020.
