Southern Foodways Alliance

Oral History Workshop

 Southern Foodways Alliance 2017

Based on my studies of women’s roles in shaping Pan-African cultural-nationalist foodways, I was awarded one of two scholarships offered through the generous support of Southern Foodways Alliance donor, Edward Lee. Funds support critical studies of oral histories.  The week-long summer 2017 SFA Oral History Workshop took place at Emory University, Atlanta.  Sessions highlighted Southern foodways through the lens of  Buford Highway’s many flavors, including El Sur Latino. Classes also focused on the impact of recorded narratives, and uses of digital humanities as well as other creative methods for disseminating narratives. I am excited about how this experience will shape my future research. Stay tuned!
