Re: CFP for 2017 Southern American Studies Association conference

I am curious to see if there is interest in forming a "foodways" panel for the SASA conference. I am a PhD candidate at University of California, Davis and my dissertation is a farm-to-fork history of provisioning urban Charleston, South Carolina between 1780-1840. For this conference, I would like to present a portion of my last chapter about creolized cooking techniques used in Charlestonian recipes.

Please email me at if you're interested in submitting a panel proposal together.
