Call for Presentation/ Paper
Wine, place and space – Global geographies of wine cultivation, production and consumption
Workshop on February 22nd/23rd, 2024, Eichstätt (Germany)
Wine cultivation, production, and consumption is a social phenomenon that intersects various scientific disciplines. Besides the natural science and technological dimension of cultivation and production, wine is an economic common and as such part of the global economy. As a consumer product, wine is entangled with (regional) identities and imaginaries, and is mobilized as a token of distinction and social class.
Various trends have shaped and are about to influence the production and consumption of wine considerably: shifts of wine cultivation areas due to climatic changes (e.g., Nordic countries), re-organization of wine production in global production networks, negotiation of work conditions in wine cultivation and production, digitalization of cultivation and production practices, and changing consumer dynamics.
This workshop aims to discuss these developments based on current theoretical approaches in human geography, sociology, philosophy, history, anthropology, cultural studies, and others and is particularly interested in the spatial configurations of these dynamics, for example with regard to scales, networks, territories or places.
Submission of abstracts (approx. 250 words): 01.10.2023 to wine-place-space(at)ku.de
