Nordic-Baltic Folklore Section (regular)
The Nordic-Baltic Section is open to all AFS members who are
interested in Nordic-Baltic folkloristics or the folklore of the Nordic
or Baltic countries, irrespective of its origins, including the
circumpolar areas and Nordic or Baltic minority groups around the world.
The section manages a listserv, sponsors
sessions on Nordic and Baltic folklore at the AFS annual meeting, and
awards a student prize. The Boreal Prize
prize consists of a modest cash award and a year’s subscription to Arv,
the Nordic Yearbook of Folklore.
