This past weekend, Center institute the Southern Foodways Alliance hosted their 17th annual symposium. They posed the question “Who is welcome at the welcome table?” and presented three days of lectures, films, conversations, and meals exploring inclusion and exclusion in southern foodways. We’re proud of the SFA’s ability to generate thoughtful discussion of an experience we all share, the table.
Below is a recap of the first two days of the symposium. You can also view highlights from social media. The symposium relies on hardworking volunteers, many of whom are students in the Southern Studies MA program. Here are a few hat doffs to helpers from the SFA staff.
