NORTH CAROLINA:  THE NEW AMERICAN HEARTLAND
September 27-29, 2017
National Humanities Center
7 T.W. Alexander Drive, Research Triangle Park, NC

North Carolina: The New American Heartland is an initiative by the National Humanities Center to consider North Carolina’s role as a bellwether for the nation as seen through a variety of cultural lenses, specifically Music, Food, and Storytelling. Highlighted by a three-day gathering (September 27-29), it will provide a forum for examining North Carolina’s complex cultural identities and for exploring how the arts and humanities can help us better understand and face our shared challenges. Culinary experts, food writers, activists, and community leaders will explore the worlds of food and consider how this most central aspect of our daily lives is intertwined with issues of globalization, environmental regulation, income inequality, and immigration. Meals prepared by community chefs will be served throughout the three-day event. Presenters include foodways expert Marcie Cohen Ferris, food studies scholar Krishnendu Ray, historian Tom Hanchett, community leader Nation Hahn, food writer and historian Keia Mastrianni and other notable voices.
