Wed 6/20, 5:30-7:00pm
Summer Lecture Series:
Boardinghouse Reach: Lost Stories of Southern Food and Powerful Women

Presented by Carolina Public Humanities

Featuring Elizabeth Engelhardt, John Shelton Reed Distinguished Professor and Chair, American Studies

Food is, of course, essential for the daily survival of every human being, but it also helps to create our cultural identities and our social relationships. Elizabeth Engelhardt brings her wide-ranging knowledge of southern and Appalachian food customs to this discussion of how food shapes Southern cultures, family life, gender identities, and the stories of our lives. Food is about much more than what we eat: it's about the ways in which we define our cultural differences and shared identities.
