Out in the Rural: A Mississippi Health Center and its War on Poverty
A Lecture by Tom Ward
Wednesday, April 19 at 5:30 p.m.
Tupelo Room in Barnard Observatory
University of Mississippi
The Southern Foodways Alliance hosts Tom Ward for a talk on food, poverty, and health on Wednesday, April 19, at 5:30 p.m. in Barnard Observatory. The event is free and open to the public.
Ward’s lecture is part of a series of lectures, roundtables, and presentations in April 2017 under the umbrella “The Radical South.” The Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies and the Center for the Study of Southern Culture, in collaboration with other departments and centers at The University of Mississippi, are co-sponsoring events. The month-long series seeks to complicate conventional narratives about the South, Southern identity, race, and romanticized notions of region.
