The AFS prizes recognizing outstanding achievement in the field of folklore have fast-approaching deadlines.
Deserving candidates can’t win if they aren’t submitted for consideration! Application and nomination details can be found on our website.
If you’re interested in a book prize like the Chicago Folklore Prize, remind your publisher to submit your text for consideration.
Other prizes like the Kenneth Goldstein Award for Lifetime Academic Leadership or the AFS Lifetime Scholarly Achievement Award require materials that should be collected in advance of the March 1 submission deadline. For all of these awards, you can self-nominate or nominate a colleague.
We sometimes make mistakes, and we are happy to correct any errors that you may come across on our site. If you find an error, please let us know using the “submit a correction” link.
