Why Vietnam Matters 

When: Wed., May 22, 5-7 p.m. 2019
Vietnam is the second-largest coffee producer in the world — so why don’t people talk about Vietnam when they talk about coffee? Join Sarah Grant, assistant professor of anthropology at California State University, Fullerton, whose research is focused on Vietnam and its role in the global coffee industry. Learn why coffee from Vietnam is often relegated to the commodity sphere rather than the specialty sphere — and how understanding commodity coffee can help in understanding specialty coffee. Plus, take a look at the cultural politics behind the production of industrial coffee. Learn how climate change plays into this discussion, and learn how understanding Vietnam can shed light on the global coffee industry as a whole. Get free tickets on Eventbrite.
