The Southern Foodways Alliance
4th Annual Graduate Student Conference
SEPTEMBER 19-20, 2016
Presented by the Southern Foodways Alliance, the Center for the Study of Southern Culture,
and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Mississippi
The Southern Foodways Alliance, along with the Center for the Study of Southern Culture, and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Mississippi, announce a symposium in the fall of 2016. The symposium will be held at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, MS, September 19-20.
Our call for papers has now closed. Acceptances will be emailed by Friday, April 29. Accepted participants’ final drafts of work to be presented at the conference will be due by 5 PM CDT Monday, August 1. Please address any questions and send all materials to Afton Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hosting graduate students from a range of disciplines to exchange knowledge, experience, and scholarship. Students will share original research or projects on any topic related to southern foodways or agriculture. Presenters may adhere to the SFA’s 2016 theme of “The Corn-fed South”—exploring the role of corn in Southern foodways and agriculture—but this is just one of many possibilities. Other areas of interest may include: immigrant foodways; methodological approaches; social, historical, or ecological studies of Southern agriculture; Southern identity and Southern food; race, class, gender, sexuality, and age in Southern food; and food system labor in the South.
