The Graduate Student Section of the American Folklore Society would like to invite submissions for the first annual Kara Nicole Bayless Best Graduate Student Paper Prize. This paper competition is held in memory of Kara Nicole Bayless, a graduate student within the department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology at Indiana University who passed away on October 16th, 2010 shortly after returning from the American Folklore Society annual meeting held in Nashville, Tennessee.

The recipient of the Kara Nicole Bayless Best Graduate Student Paper Prize Competition will receive $100 and a one-year membership to AFS.

Submission requirements:
  • This paper competition is open for graduate students only. Students must be currently enrolled within a graduate level degree program prior to receiving their PhD. Submissions by PhD candidates are accepted. 
  • Graduate students interested in submitting for the paper competition must be current members of the graduate student section of AFS.
  • The theme for the paper competition will rotate each year to correspond with the theme of the current AFS annual meeting theme. The theme for the 2012 competition will be "The Continuity and Creativity of Culture." The paper competition theme will always be synchronous with the current theme of the AFS annual meeting. 
  • For more information about the prize requirements and submission instructions, see the Graduate Student Section page.

Submissions must be received by September 25.
