American Folklore Society

Founded in 1888 at Harvard University by humanistic and social science scholars, the American Folklore Society advocates the collection and analysis of oral and material traditions using both literary and anthropological methodologies. This newly created AFS web site reflects this interdisciplinary trend and is divided into four categories. The first, Contacting AFS, contains information about the officers of the society and the site manager. The second, About AFS, leads to the outdated AFS Gopher (which still contains an archive of AFS Newsletters), information concerning the Annual Meeting, AFS Bylaws, Membership, Publications, and Sections. The third section, Resources, lists the Calender of Events, Conferences, Internships, Jobs, Prizes, and Vitae Archive. Finally, the Related Sites, points areas of folkloristic interest: the American Council of Learned Societies, Graduate Programs, American Folklife Center, Center for Folklife Programs, and other Folklore Links.
