Wild Fermentation: Microbes, Fermentation & Makgeolli

13 mar 2021 21:00 - 22:30

Speech by Victoria Lee, Paris IAS Fellow, as part of the series "Wild Fermentation" organized by the associations Active Cultures and GYOPO.


How do paradigms in biological sciences and national identity shape alcohol brewing practices, and even dictate the classification of microorganisms? How do notions of purity and diversity enable certain concepts in alcohol production while disallowing others? Yong Ha Jeong, with historians of science Victoria Lee and Charles Kollmer, will discuss historical conditions spanning from the late 19th-century to the present that have shaped alcohol fermentation practices in Korea and Japan.

This event is free and open to the public and will feature live captioning and ASL interpretation.
