These are the questions that the authors investigate in this video. In doing so, they reveal that some definitions of cornpone that are still being contested today, and while corn is presented as a staple of the Appalachian diet and has gender and class distinctions, it is also represented in literature throughout history.This record comprises a video and a script. The video, which, in accordance with UNC Asheville policy, has been captioned and uploaded to YouTube, is hypelinked in "Additional Information" below.
