Southern Foodways Alliance Studies in Culture, People, and Place

The University of Georgia Press is proud to announce a new series in Southern Food and Foodways studies.

Studies in Culture, People, and Place explores key themes and tensions in food studies—including race, class, gender, power, and the environment—on a macroscale and through the microstories of men and women who grow, prepare, and serve food. The series presents a variety of voices, including those of scholars, journalists, and writers of creative nonfiction. 

The series is a collaboration of the University of Georgia Press and the Southern Foodways Alliance at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi. 

Series editor John T. Edge is the director of the Southern Foodways Alliance and general editor of Cornbread Nation: The Best of Southern Food Writing. He is the author or editor of more than a dozen books, among them the foodways volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture.

“The Southern Foodways Alliance [is] this country’s most intellectually engaged (and probably most engaging) food society.”
—Corby Kummer, Atlantic Monthly
