2017 Southern Foodways Symposium: Watch it online!

Watch the symposium online!

We’ll test the stream on Tuesday from 2-6 p.m. CT, so be sure to check the feed during that window of time so we’ll have time to assist in troubleshooting if needed. Online assistance will not be available during the event.

Follow the SFA on social media this weekend as we host our annual fall symposium in Oxford. We’re @potlikker on Twitter, and look for #SFA17 to see news from the event. Check out southernfoodways on Instagram. And this year, for the first time, we’ll be streaming presentations live online.
