The experience of food serves as an evocative lens onto colonial settlements and antebellum plantations, New South cities and Civil Rights-era lunch counters, chonric hunger and agricultural reform, conterculture communes and iconic restaurants of the evolving South. In this session, Dr. Ferris will explore how food– as cuisine and as commodity–has expressed and shaped southern identity to the present day.

Thursday Art and Culture (TAC) Talks bring collegiate level lectures to your museum. Featuring scholars from around the country, the lectures are selected to provide supplemental information on our current exhibits, or highlight the history and heritage of the mountains.
