American Folklore Society Annual Meeting
AHA Staff, April 2002
The American Folklore Society will hold its 114th annual meeting October 16–20, 2002, in Rochester, New York. The theme for the meeting is "Image, Object, and Processes of Documentation" The meeting organizers view "object" broadly, as created in various media.
The society invites presenters from any discipline to prepare presentations and organize sessions about these topics, or about any other subject related to folklore.
Partnership and collaboration in the production of knowledge will be emphasized at the Rochester meeting, continuing the highly successful theme of the 2001 annual meeting in Anchorage, Alaska. Session organizers have been encouraged to include community scholars, tradition bearers, and colleagues from other disciplines as session participants.
The deadline for proposals is April 15, 2002. Details and forms are available at http://www.afsnet.org.
