Southern Studies Grad Student to Present Foodways Paper in NYC This Summer

A paper on Greenwood, Mississippi's community garden by Southern Studies graduate student Patrick Weems has been accepted at the Global Gateways and Local Connections conference to be held in New York City, June 20-24. 

Patrick originally wrote this paper for the fall foodways course taught by Dr. Jill Cooley, the SFA's current post-doc appointment. 

Together, the SFA and the Center for the Study of Southern Culture awarded Patrick a stipend to attend the conference and present his work.

Congratulations, Patrick!
