September 23-24, 2021, Toronto
Settler Vines features four live sessions on the history of wine. They are spread out over the course of two days. The conference also hosts the Avie Bennett Historica Canada Public Lecture in Canadian History on Thursday September 23rd as part of its program.
Do you want to know more about the spread of wine from Europe around the world? Or to explore the impact of globalization on wine production? Or perhaps you are more interested in the environmental histories of vineyards? This conference highlights the varying contributions of Indigenous Peoples, migrants, and scientists. Lastly, it explores how wine has been marketed to new consumers.
For the Avie Bennett public lecture, Settler Vines is honored to welcome Chief Clarence Louie of the Osoyoos Indian Band. The Osoyoos community created the first Indigenous owned winery in North America. Chief Louie will discuss Indigenous Peoples and the wine industry in British Columbia in the context of globalization and climate change.
