What is Parade Talk?
Parade Talk written by Tiff Graham began as a blog on H-Celebration, a humanities academic website. This is the archive for essays discussing parades in relation to social movements, material culture, trademark law, phenomenology, parody/satire, traditions, marketing, foodways, etc.
Twitter and Instagram accounts are set up with the Parade Talk name.
Some of the new essays that I've added under Parade Talk focus more on history, foodways, and festive events. The intention is to bring in more foodways content.
