2013 Foodways Texas Symposium - Our Barbecue, Ourselves - Austin, Texas

Our Barbecue, Ourselves
April 4-6, 2013
Austin, Texas

Our Barbecue, Ourselves, the 3rd Annual Foodways Texas symposium will explore the past, present, and potential of smoked meat in Texas and its intimate connections to Texas cultural history and identity. We'll consider what we can learn from barbecue as both meal and process. What can both the meat and the dishes served alongside it tell us about our history? How have traditions and techniques from diverse heritages intersected to create today's Texas barbecue? How is the way we consume barbecue and barbecue culture being affected by changing technologies and food ideologies? We'll tackle these questions and more as we feast on generous helpings of barbecue from around the state and beyond.

Ticket costs:

$250 (member)
$280 (general public)

Registration includes lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday as well as a welcome dinner on Thursday night. See schedule below.
