MAPACA is proud to announce the 2017 Divine Impact Award winner Chef Jose Garces. Chef Garces is an award winning chef, author, and restaurateur with a strong connection to the Philadelphia area. Chef Garces’ culinary success as a James Beard Award winner and his work on the hit Food Network show Iron Chef America are complemented by his work with the Garces Foundation, a nonprofit that provides health and educational services to Philadelphia’s immigrant community. Chef Garces will receive the 2017 DIA and participate in a Q&A at the conference on Thursday November 9th. A reception will follow.
MAPACA’s membership is comprised of college and university faculty, independent scholars and artists, and graduate and undergraduate students. MAPACA is an inclusive professional organization dedicated to the study of popular and American culture in all their multi-disciplinary manifestations. It is a regional division of the Popular Culture and American Culture Association, which, in the words of Popular Culture Association founder Ray Browne, is a “multi-disciplinary association interested in new approaches to the expressions, mass media and all other phenomena of everyday life.”
