Katy Clune (Folklore MA, 2015) has her first web feature up on the Southern Foodways Alliance‘s (SFA) site. As the SFA’s new digital editor, Katy will be contributing to the SFA’s mission to use food as an entry point for storytelling about the people of the changing South by showcasing oral histories, films, and photographs from the organization’s vast archives in weekly longform web features. Her first feature, “My Food Speaks All the Languages I Cannot Speak,” is up now on the SFA’s website.
Katy’s thesis, “Home in a New Place: Making Laos in Morganton, North Carolina,” explored, through the world of one family, how Lao-Americans have crafted their home in a small southern community. Congratulations Katy!
