Okraclass is the fancy term for the academic side of our beloved Okracast podcast: these episodes feature talks and presentations from our conferences, symposia and other scholarly events.

Our first episode is an audio sampler from the recent Women, Work, and Food graduate conference we hosted with the Sara Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies. The conference was Friday, September 13, 2013, held here on the University of Mississippi campus. Read our blog recap of the tour de force of graduate student event here.
