Building Foodway Bridges in the Nuevo New South

September 21, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Dr. Steven Alvarez is an activist, educator, and scholar who has successfully combined his passion for college education with meaningful interventions in the community. He has presented in many universities throughout the United States and has recently received attention in several national media outlets for his pedagogical initiative “taco literacy,” which attempts to locate culture in quotidian food artifacts that we have discounted as culturally inconsequential.

In this talk, Dr. Alvarez will provide practical strategies for thinking about everyday cultural expressions, such as food production and consumption, as bridges to establish meaningful dialogues and exchanges with our students and the community.

Open to the public. No tickets required.

For further information please contact Dr. Francisco Laguna-Correa,
