Presenting Papers at Meetings

At the annual meeting, members read papers, play music, give demonstrations, and display items on a variety of folklore subjects. (For a glimpse at titles of papers presented at meetings over the years, see the List of Meeting Papers.)

The Vice-President/Program Chair plans the program for the next year's meeting, and accepts proposals from members.

To be considered, a paper should meet the following criteria:

  • It must be on a folklore-related topic (e.g., customs, beliefs, traditions, skills, music, art, legends, superstitions)

  • The topic must be relevant to Texas and the Southwest.

  • It must be presented orally, by the author, at the meeting in a 15-20 minute presentation.

  • Audio-visuals (PowerPoint, videos on DVD, demonstrations, artifacts) may be used and are encouraged.

  • A manuscript of the presentation must be submitted to the Program Director who will select the papers to be presented at the meeting.
