TAC Talk: The
Edible South: The Power of Food and the Making of an American Region
November 15th at 6
Thursday Art and
Culture (TAC) Talks bring collegiate level lectures to the Blowing Rock Art
& History Museum. The experience of food serves as an evocative lens
onto colonial settlements and antebellum plantations, New South cities and
Civil Rights-era lunch counters, chronic hunger and agricultural reform,
counterculture 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.
Due to an illness in
