Meet the presenters for our 2017 Graduate Student Conference, September 11-12 in Oxford, Mississippi.
“Through this project, and Ava’s class as a whole, I learned to think like a documentarian.”
Rebecca Lauck Cleary produced her film, Food for Thought, for her Documenting Southern Foodways course with Pihakis Film Fellow Ava Lowrey.
Dr. Passidomo’s course, The South in Food, models how educators may use SFA content as a teaching tool in the classroom.
As thinking about food has expanded into issues of labor, globalization and localism, environment and sustainability, health, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and the construction and manipulation of images, listening to all political perspectives can be difficult. It is a both a goal and a practice that takes work.
Award winning chef and author Bryant Terry will offer a free lecture at Dillard University. Later that evening, he will share recipes from his cookbooks, including his latest, Afro-Vegan.
We’re thankful for the presenters who stepped to the stage at our 18th Southern Foodways Symposium last month.
The much-anticipated Fall Symposium Bibliography is out! Grab a latte and get reading.
Submissions due Thursday, April 30 for the 2015 Graduate Student Conference on Food and Pop Culture, September 10-11 at the University of Mississippi.
