Becoming a Member

Applications for ISFNR membership can be submitted at any time and will be considered twice a year, in June and December. New members will receive a message welcoming them to the Society along with information about membership fees and benefits. As per statutes of the ISFNR, the official announcement of new members will be made at the next ISFNR General Assembly.

A complete application consists of the application form and the applicant's CV listing any publications, theses, and/or conference presentations in folk-narrative research. The application materials are to be sent to the Chair of the Membership Committee as well as to Society's President.

It is also helpful to send two recent abstracts that are representative of the applicant's scholarship. Any offprints, however, should be sent to Society's President for an ISFNR library/archive.

If you have any ISFNR Membership questions, please contact directly the chair of the Membership Committee, Prof. Kimberly J Lau (lau@ucsc.edu).
