The State of The Plate: Food and the Local-Global Nexus
March 27, 2015 - March 28, 2015
The State of The Plate: Food and the Local-Global Nexus brings together students, faculty, independent scholars, entrepreneurs, local organizations, and community members to share current research, initiatives, and insights that explore the history, aesthetics, and contemporary politics of food from our local worlds in North Carolina to the global U.S. South.
Throughout this interdisciplinary gathering, we consider implications and connections between the changing food worlds of the U.S. South and the inter-connected global environment we share. Most events will be held at the FedEx Global Education Center at UNC-Chapel Hill.
