Presented by Jeff D. Peterson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of
Sociology and Wine Studies
This presentation will explore the modern history of the Oregon
wine industry through the sociological lens, including how winemaking is
connected to an approach linking an appreciation of the arts, science, and
environmental issues. While the early success of the modern wine period in
Oregon may be attributed to this approach, and the respective backgrounds of
the early grape growers in the region, Peterson will argue that the future of
Oregon wine hinges more closely on an interdisciplinary, liberal arts approach
to understanding the needs and changes in the industry.\
About the Speaker:
Jeff D. Peterson is associate professor of sociology and wine
studies at Linfield College. He conducts the yearly Oregon Wine Industry Labor
Survey supported by the Oregon Wine Board. He recently completed a sabbatical
studying wine in Spanish-speaking countries in South America and Spain.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
