The American Folklore Society's Folk Belief and Religious Folklife Section has awarded Cade Williams, an A.B. candidate in Anthropology and Folklore and Mythology at Harvard College, the 2021 William A. Wilson prize for the best undergraduate student paper in Religious folklife and folk belief.

In awarding the 2021 Kenneth Goldstein Award for Lifetime Academic Leadership to Dorothy Noyes at its Annual Meeting last October, the American Folklore Society celebrated her outstanding achievements in advancing the work of students and colleagues, of the Center for Folklore Studies at The Ohio State University, of the American Folklore Society, and of the field as a whole.

These last months of the year are customarily a time for reflection. This is certainly true at AFS, as we work to close out the 2021 annual meeting, and shift to preparing for next year. In that spirit, we’ve compared notes, and offer these preliminary observations about our experiments of the past year.

It’s AFS Election Season! Submit Your Ballot by December 15 for Executive Board and Nominating Committee Voting begins on Thursday, November 11, and this year, it ends December 15, 2021, so you can expect to learn the results before the new year.
