2023 WSFS Annual Conference

University of Nevada, Las Vegas 

Friday and Saturday, April 14-15, 2023

Pursuant to our Save the Date Announcement, for our 2023 conference, which will take place in person at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, WSFS is soliciting panels first, followed by a general call for papers (which will be posted in December 2022). WSFS encourages scholars to submit a panel proposal for which you are willing to chair and deliver a paper.

For panels, there may be up to two co-chairs, and thus two pre-selected papers, but all panels are to be open to paper proposals through the website. That is, proposed panels should not be organized as “closed” sessions.


Each panel may accept a maximum of 8 papers, spread over two sessions, and can combine a traditional paper session with a roundtable, workshop, or other format for the other session.

Submission Information:

Please submit your proposal via email to by Dec 9, 2022, with the following information:

Panels that connect with the conference theme (Folklore, Time, and Temporality) are especially welcomed, though not required.

Full particulars regarding the 2023 Annual Meeting will be provided in a formal Call for Papers.
