During the last Annual Meeting of the American Folklore Society in Baltimore, our colleague Amy Shuman was awarded the Lifetime Scholarly Achievement Award. This award has been bestowed semi-annually or annually since 2002 on a living senior member in recognition of outstanding scholarly achievement over the course of a career. A host of present and former students were there to applaud and to toast her at the Ohio State reception, along with a Society-wide network of collaborators and mentees. It’s hard to believe, but she works as hard at AFS as she does at Ohio State.
