I invite all interested scholars to propose papers for panels sponsored by the Medieval and Early Modern Folklore section of the American Folklore Society, to be presented at the joing meeting of the American Folklore Society and ISFNR, to be held in Miami October 19-22, 2016. We are organizing two panels at this year's meeting:

“Into the Vale of Years”: Musings on “the Incomplete” on the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s Passing

We invite papers on the theme of the idea of incomplete/revised texts, the idea of the incomplete, etc. in the works of Shakespeare in this 400th anniversary of the poet’s passing. 

“Tell My Story”: Musings on Narrative on the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s Passing

We invite papers on the theme of the idea of the construction of narrative, false narrative, etc. in the works of Shakespeare in this 400th anniversary of the poet’s passing. 

Please send BOTH the short abstract (100 words) AND the long abstract (300) for your 15-20-minute paper to Kerry Kaleba at kerry.kaleba@gmail.com by March 25, 2016. I will also need to submit your institutional affiliation (or status as an independent scholar), and presentation title to AFS. Please include an e-mail address or a phone number where you can be reached before March 31. If your proposal is accepted, you will need to complete and submit the AFS online registration form for a participant in an organized panel at www.afsnet.org by March 31, 2016.
