2017 SFA Summer Symposium: Charlotte
2017 SFA Summer Foodways Symposium
June 22-24, 2017
Charlotte, NC

Charlotte, North Carolina, is a dynamic city where a Newer South comes into focus. Join SFA for a three-day Summer Symposium that explores this city of new arrivals. Through lectures, meals, tastings, and experiences, SFA will reframe prevailing ideas about ethnicity and identity.

You may know the Queen City as a place once powered by mills and now driven by finance. Led by a smart cadre of thinkers and cooks, SFA aims to equip you with new frames of reference. We see Charlotte as a global city. A chicken salad arepa city. A city where raja tamales, chorizo tortas, and carnitas tacos are bellwether foods. We think of this piedmont citadel as a Latinized place where Mexican and Central American and South American and Asian and African peoples craft new dishes and new Southern identities.

Highlights include, but are not limited to:

--Piko Ewoodzie, John Egerton Scholar in Residence, parses Charlotte narratives
--Tom Hanchett, Salad Bowl Suburb champion, maps the city
--Zhenia Martinez of Las Delicias bakes piglet-shaped puerquitos
--Latino South Supper from Arepas Grill, Sav/Way, and more

--Wake up to Family Meal from Mimosa Grill
--Eric Hoenes del Pinal of UNC Charlotte negotiates a new Latino identity
--Julie Weisse, author of Corazon de Dixie, speaks of skyscrapers and chicken plants
--Kathleen Purvis of the Charlotte Observer sketches her city in six dishes
--Central Avenue Progressive Lunch featuring Tacos el Nevado, Pho Quynh, and more
--Ava Lowrey, SFA Pihakis Documentary Fellow, plumbs fish camp archives
--Catfish Supper, featuring Twin Tops Fish Camp and friends

--Start the day with barbecue posole from Roosters
--Muralist and activist Rosalia Torres-Weiner painted the beautiful artwork above
--Assay Charlotte past and present with Michael Graff of Charlotte Magazine
--Pacino Mancillas of the AC&M multicultural marketing agency sells Latino Charlotte
--Dreamers dream and resist, says Oliver Merino of the Levine Museum of the New South
--Meet Charlotte oral history narrators and documentarian Victoria Bouloubasis
--Lunch celebration at Johnson and Wales University of next generation Charlotte foodways
--Future Tense Charlotte Dinner with Kindred Restaurant and friends
