This year, in collaboration with NYU’s Latino Studies and Latin American Studies Departments, NYFS seeks to encourage young scholars to continue their studies and become active contributors to the fields of folklore, ethnomusicology, anthropology and more.

A preliminary schedule can be found online. Registration is $20.00 for Members of the New York Folklore Society, $25.00 for non-members, and free for students. For more further information or to register, call (518) 346-7008, e-mail nyfs@nyfolklore.org, or visit their website.
