“NolaLoyola” is an annual event held every fall by Loyola University’s Center for the Study of New Orleans that brings together leading experts, personalities, and scholars to engage in a thematic exploration of the forces that have shaped and continue to shape the Crescent City. Loyola hosted the first NolaLoyola in September 2011. Themed “Live to Eat,” it featured scholars from across the nation who presented original research about the ways in which food has defined New Orleans history and culture. The keynote event featured “a conversation on legendary fare” between Ti Martin of Commander’s Palace, JoAnn Clevenger of Upperline Restaurant, and Leah Chase of Dooky Chase’s Restaurant. NolaLoyola takes place every year on the Friday that falls closest to October 1st.
