Fishing Traditions and Fishing Futures: Commercial Fishing in Georgia-Tricentennial Speakers Series Part 4

Sunday, Apr 25, 2021 (3 PM to 4 PM)

For generations, commercial fishing has been an integral part of coastal Georgia’s culture and heritage. Dr. Jennifer Sweeney Tookes will be discussing oral histories used to document local fisheries’ knowledge and perspectives about the state and fate of Georgia’s commercial fishing industry.

Fort King George is turning 300! To celebrate, please join us each month in 2021 for our free speaker series. Each presentation will focus on a different aspect of our local history. This presentation will be offered virtually.

Dr. Jennifer Sweeney Tookes is a cultural anthropologist at Georgia Southern University.

This project is supported by Georgia Humanities, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, through funding from the Georgia General Assembly.
