SFA Seeks Postdoctoral Fellow for 2012-13

Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi

Southern Foodways Alliance is an academic institution. It's one of our core values. We take very seriously the statement that "academic rigor underscores our work."

Backed by the generous support of Southern Foodways Alliance members and donors, this school year we welcomed postdoctoral fellow and adjunct assistant professor, Dr. Jill Cooley to the Center for the Study of Southern Culture. Dr. Cooley has been a wonderful addition to not only the SFA team, but to the whole of the Center as well.

Thanks to a grant from the Chisholm Foundation, SFA is pleased to again offer a postdoctoral teaching fellowship and adjunct assistant professorship in Southern Studies for 2012-2013. The fellow will teach two courses—a Southern Studies course entitled Foodways and Southern Culture and a second course related to foodways in Southern Studies or in his/her discipline, i.e., History, English, Sociology, Anthropology, or another liberal arts discipline.
