Buy TicketsOn February 25, SFA hosts its third annual Food Media South symposium in Birmingham, Alabama. A thoughtful host of food media experts will explore storytelling in the digital era and ask timely questions about how immigration and ethnicity and identity impact which food stories get told and who tells them.

  • Why is it important to tell immigrant stories?
  • What do we risk when we view immigrants as a monolithic group?
