JRH 245

The SOAN department invites you to its final Spring 2015 Colloquium.  The series provides an opportunity for departmental faculty to share their research in a brown bag/workshop environment organized around short presentations and discussions of pre-circulated papers. 

The final colloquium will be on Thursday, April 2nd, from 12:00 - 1:00pm in JRH 245. 

The Science, Magic, and Religion of Wine Terroirs
 will be presented by Deborah Heath. The paper invites discussion of two conference papers based on her ongoing research on wine and the notion of terroir, the taste of place. These both focus on the particular practices and provocative ideologies surrounding what is known as biodynamic agriculture as it is applied to wine production. Professor Heath is interested in the ways in which alternative notions of science are invoked and contested with respect to terroir, viticulture, biodynamics, and the environment.

Please RSVP here to access to the paper.
