2013 Summer Symposium: Richmond, Virginia (and Charlottesville)
The 2013 SFA Summer Symposium in Richmond, Virginia, will explore women, work, and food. The event will be held in and around Richmond, Virginia. Our headquarters will be the Jefferson Hotel.

SFA has staged summer Field Trips for more than a decade. This year, we reinvent that annual tradition when we stage our first Summer Foodways Symposium, June 20-22, in Richmond, Virginia (with a prequel in nearby Charlottesville).

Our programming theme for 2013 is Women, Work, and Food. To get ready, we've been collecting oral histories and shooting footage in Virginia. This year we showcase women entrepreneurs, cooks, waitresses, bakers, and more.

Instead of focusing on women as stewards of hearth and home, we are telling stories of women who began their working lives at home and on the farm, but leveraged those skills to join the entrepreneurial class and drive local economies.

To get an idea of what the Summer Symposium will be like, imagine that the fall Symposium and the Field Trip had a baby. Among the highlights will be:
- Anson Mills Artisan Supper at Whiskey Jar in Charlottesville on Thursday night, featuring female cheese makers, cider makers, and rabbit farmers
- Leni Sorenson on Mary Randolph, The Virginia Housewife, and the enslaved women who worked her kitchens
- Meats, Sweets, Cocktails, and Preserves, The Virginia Housewife Supper
- Todd Kliman, author of The Wild Vine, on the female vignerons of Virginia
- Psyche Williams-Forson on Building Houses out of Chicken Legs: Black Women, Food, and Power
- Liberia on the James Supper, featuring Ida MaMasu of Africanne on Main
