"Getting Something to Eat in Jackson: Race, Class and Food in the American South"

7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, Bazarsky Lecture Hall

Joseph C. Ewoodzie Jr., associate professor of sociology and Vann Professor of Racial Justice at Davidson College, uses qualitative research to examine how marginalized populations in urban locales make sense of inequalities in their everyday lives. He employs ethnographic methods to investigate how these populations interpret their social selves and the boundaries that both constrain and enable them. Ewoodize uses both music and food as a lens to understand the cultural dynamics of African American life in urban settings. His book "Getting Something to Eat in Jackson: Race, Class, and Food in the American South" provides a vivid portrait of African American life in the urban South that uses food to explore the complex interactions of race and class. Ewoodize is Ghanaian-American, raised in a small village in the central region of Ghana (Gomoa Jukwa).
