The schedule for the first symposium hosted by Foodways Texas is officially online here, and SFA's oral historian, Amy Evans Streeter, will be one of their inaugural presenters. Together with Elizabeth Englehardt, who has been a longtime SFA member and collaborator (remember those Texas barbecue oral histories?), the two will be on a panel entitled "What's in a Name? The Ways of Food in Texas."
Other events at the the Feb. 25-26 event in Galveston include a dockside dinner hosted by Tim Byrne of Smoke (Dallas), a photo exhibit on oyster culture by Jody Horton, and a discussion of Asian Texans and Tejanos on the Gulf Coast.

Registration is online and open to the public, with an early bird rate available to anyone who registers before February 4.
