Announcing the 2014 Southern Foodways Oral History Workshop held on the University of Mississippi campus in Oxford, MS, July 14-18, 2014. Honoraria available to accepted applicants. Two diversity scholarships are also available. Applications are due by APRIL 1, 2014.
In an effort to train young scholars and bring more people into the field of oral history, we offer an annual workshop. The workshop is held at SFA headquarters on the campus of the University of Mississippi in Oxford and is led by SFA oral historian Amy C. Evans.
This workshop is an introduction to SFA-devised oral history methods and practices. The focus will be on digital audio and still photographs, applied to the study of foodways. Workshop participants will be introduced to the field via examples from the SFA archive, become familiar with equipment, acquire interviewing skills, explore the art of documentary photography, and learn a variety of processing techniques.
If you are a current student (graduate or undergraduate) or an SFA member and have an interest in gaining fieldwork experience or enhancing existing skills, we invite you to apply. Visit www.southernfoodways.org for more information.
