Welcome to Taco Literacy. We’ll be ready to start exploring Mexican foodways in the South. The goals for your research writing about Mexican foodways in the South will include
1) writing from sensory experiences, critiquing preferences and tastes with regards to Mexican food as part of American and global cuisines;
2) engaging an oral history project connected to a review of a restaurant using photography and text, and
3) exploring emotion, language, and narrative foodways in the South and transnationally.
Though tacos are explicitly named in the course, they need not be the focus for your research.
