Our 2015 Global American South conference will focus on “The State of the Plate: Food and the Local/Global Nexus.” Co-sponsored by the Center for Global Initiatives, the Global Research Institute, the Department of American Studies, and the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, the conference will be held March 27-28, 2015 in the FedEx Global Education Center.

Presentations will focus on specific southern flavors and ingredients, broadly defined, as both concept and reality in the American South. Each session will include respondents who are engaged in the practical aspects of food today, including farmers, chefs, entrepreneurs, and community leaders.

The deadline for our Call for Proposals is November 15, 2014. Please send proposals as well as any questions to plate@unc.edu.
