Hello everybody --
The AFS Folk Narrative Section wants you! That's right. As you all know, this year's meetings of the American Folklore Society will take place in Nashville, TN, October 13-16. And looking forward toward that, you're all invited: if you are organizing a folk narrative session (panel, poster session, forum, etc.) that you would like us to sponsor, or if you have an idea for a session and need a hand finding participants, or if you have a paper and are looking for a session, please contact us and tell us what's going on.
We are looking for sessions seeking sponsorship that address either this year's theme of "Lay and Expert Knowledge," or core concepts in folklore (including "context," "folk," "genre," "group," "identity," "local knowledge," "performance," "text," or "tradition"). The deadline for AFS proposals is March 31; and the meeting's official page is http://afsnet.org/annualmeet/.
Also: if you are interested in folk narrative, whether or not you plan to present on that topic at this meeting, we encourage you to join the section and help us expand the array of features we can offer to you. Right now, we are working to create some new features to help section members keep in touch and keep apprised of narrative-related opportunities and events. And we have also set up a Facebook group, "American Folklore Society -- Folk Narrative Section," that you are all welcome to join.
We hope to hear from you soon.
