American Folklore Society 2015 Annual Meeting Plenary Session Videos Now Available

Videos of the two plenary addresses from the American Folklore Society's (AFS) 2015 Annual Meeting in Long Beach, California, are not available online. The opening address, John Szwed's Francis Lee Utley Memorial Lecture, "What Ever Happened to Folk Songs?" was sponsored by the AFS Fellows, and Michael Ann Williams's Presidential Address, "After the Revolution: Folklore, History, and the Future of Our Discipline," closed the conference.

AFS appreciates the assistance of Indiana University's Office of Collaboration Technologies, which has made possible both the live streaming of these addresses and their permanent archiving online.


AFS has been documenting selected annual meeting presentations since 2004. Later this year, the organization will make the complete collection of these videos freely available online as part of the AFS-IU Open Folklore partnership.
