We welcome proposals that explore folklore, folklife, and traditional forms of expression. Papers may include, but are not limited to, examinations of oral traditions, music, material culture, foodways, folk festivals, ritual, dance, and the work of folklore collectors. We are especially interested in proposals that explore auto-ethnography, interdisciplinary approaches to folklore subjects, and literary interpretations of folklore and folklife.

Please send a brief proposal (250 words) to Emily Kader (ekader@emory.edu) by May 15, 2012.
