Week 6 – Fall
9am: Academic Statement due in class at 9am (typed, 750 word limit)
Permaculture: We will focus on ‘systems thinking’ through the lens of fermentation science and making wine. For Tuesday read through the left nav bar topics at Wine For Beginners (overview, harvesting, crushing, juice separation, must treatment, fermentation, and clarification) Before reading these pages review the list of approved additives and processes for wine and the Carte De Menu, pages 207-212 in Naked Wine. While reading note connections to what you learned on the field trip and from reading Naked Wine. The wikipedia page on yeasts in wine making is also a good resource
Cultural Studies: Selections from Wine and Culture, Vineyard to Glass (wine and culture.pdf. All students read “Introduction” and then select 1 additional chapter of the 3 options included in the PDF. Choose either “The Social Life of Terroir among Bordeaux Winemakers”; or “The Things that Count: Rethinking Terroir in Australia,” or “Terroir and Locality: An Anthropological Perspective.” NOTE: Please consider reading this PDF online and taking notes by opening a parallel file (an electronic notebook) rather than printing the PDF or handwriting your notes. That is, experiment with online means of reading and annotating the process of your mind touching and being touched by the intro + one additional chapter of your choice. Then bring a printed copy of your annotations–the documentation of your reading process, complete with favorite quotes, new words, insights, provocations, questions, etc. to lecture Tuesday and seminar Wednesday.
