A group of Obies traveled to France during Winter Term to interview winemakers and scientists as part of a documentary about wine in Alsace, Burgundy, and the Rhône Valley.
Asia and the Environment
With a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, Oberlin faculty and students partnered with Lingnan University and The Education University of Hong Kong (EUHK) for a Winter Term project focused on Asia and the environment.
