Part of the Personally Speaking series presented by the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
While many books examine southern food, "Consuming Identity," co-authored by Ashli Quesinberry Stokes, focuses on the role food plays in building identities and the messages food sends about who we are, how we see ourselves, and how we see others.
Learn more about why we are what we eat at Personally Speaking on Sept. 26.
Stokes is an associate professor in communication studies and director of the Center for the Study of the New South.
A book signing and reception will follow the presentation.
Parking information will be sent a few days before the event to those who register.
Registration is required.
