This course approaches wine, a cultural and traditional product, from an anthropological perspective. It explores how wine has contributed powerfully to human cultures. Topics considered include the construction of territories and local identities through wine, and the relation between wine and religion, family structures, social institutions, gender, identity, power, class, and heritage. The course’s organization is both topical and geographic.
