AFS Review
Filter news by category:

The AFS Review publishes a wide range of materials, including essays, notes, and queries, as well as all the materials once included in the AFS Newsletter (news, reports, job postings, program listings, etc.). The goal of the AFS Review is to give us a place to reflect on, revise, or refine the things we do every day that actually instantiate folklore studies in the world, a space to capture the conversations that are already taking place among practicing folklorists.

Please send all AFS Review submissions to
