AFS Review: Notes

Sunday Workshop at AFS on Publishing this Year's Research

Margaret Mills and Bill Westerman will be convening an experimental session on Sunday morning of AFS this year from 9 to 11 a.m., taking advantage of Minneapolis' central location.  The session was originally envisioned as a seminar-workshop for contributors to the proposed special issue of JAF they are editing on Folklore Studies in the Current Troubled Political Era. Those who have submitted manuscripts in response to the CFP will have had the opportunity to read and comment on one another's work, but also anyone who wants to take on writing a response or dialogue with the articles can have the chance to volunteer. Most of the session will be a discussion of the submitted papers.

However, we seek to expand this workshop in a way that fosters more good work in our discipline. Given the anticipated numbers of papers at the conference in response to the new regime, and the importance of publishing quality work in and beyond our field, we invite our colleagues to come to this workshop session in which we hope the germ of special issues and edited volumes can begin to take form. We expect this year's conference panels will reveal affinities and talk, as there always is, about revising papers into books and journal issues. We want to provide time and space for people who want to plan more formal collections to meet with each other and potential editors around themed volumes.

Anyone who would like to participate is welcome.  This is just an early heads up so you can make flight arrangements accordingly.
