2017 Southern Foodways Symposium
20th Southern Foodways Symposium
October 5-7, 2017
Oxford, Mississippi

Join us for the TWENTIETH Southern Foodways Symposium, October 5-7 in and around the town of Oxford, Mississippi. This year, SFA focuses on El Sur Latino. Through lectures, tastings, and experiences, SFA reframes ideas about ethnicity and identity. We embrace the demographic destiny of our region and our nation. This event honors the active Southerners of El Sur Latino who chose to raise families and grow businesses in this newest of New Souths.

SFA has booked a robust roster of speakers. Stepping to the podium will be old friends like Gustavo Arellano, Gravy columnist and author of Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America; and Steven Alvarez, a Smith Symposium Fellow, who has developed a Taco Literacy class for his college rhetoric students. Joining them will be new collaborators like Monica Perales, who teaches history at the University of Houston and co-directs the Gulf Coast Food Project; and Michelle Garcia, a journalist and filmmaker with bylines in Guernica, Columbia Journalism Review, and Oxford American.

Attendees must be current 2017 SFA members. Members should receive an email on July 17 with ticket link and the password. Up to two tickets may be purchased per transaction. For questions, write info@southernfoodways.org. A full schedule of events will be emailed to all attendees on Friday, September 29.

For planning purposes, please note that registration begins at 4 p.m. on Thursday at the Powerhouse. Late registration will be Friday at 8:30 a.m. at the Lyric Theater on the Oxford Square. No refunds after Sept. 1.
