At Home on the Range
6th Annual Foodways Texas Symposium
The University of Texas
April 7-9, 2016
Join us for our 6th annual Foodways Texas symposium, “At Home on the Range,” where we will explore the relationship between food, identity, and gender roles in our home state of Texas. Baking and barbecue, home cooking and professional kitchens, cowboys and chili queens– each of these pairs demonstrate the range of masculine and feminine relationships to food. The hidden histories of cookbooks, San Antonio chili queens, Czech home kitchens, and women pitmasters are just a few of the topics we will explore at this year’s symposium. We will hear from chefs, scholars, food writers, and entrepreneurs about the ways in which gender influenced the personal histories and major industries of the state. Join us as we delve into the intersections of gender and foodways in Texas!
