What is quality? An introduction to criticism using film & wine

Info about event


Monday 25 October 2021,  at 14:15 - 15:30


The AIAS Auditorium

Joint talk by AIAS Associate Fellows Qian Janice Wang, Department of Food Science and Cathrin Bengesser, Department of Media & Journalism Studies, Aarhus University





The critic who publishes their quality assessments of food, wine or film has been dethroned by ratings, rankings and all of us: the armchair critics at home. In this seminar we trace the development of art criticism using the examples of film and wine and introduce you to the basics of formulating your own quality assessments of what you watch and drink. Includes a short  wine tasting.

About the speakers


The event is offered by AIAS associate fellow Qian Janice Wang, wine educator and Assistant Professor at the Department of Food Science, together with the AIAS associate fellow Cathrin Bengesser, avid TV viewer and Assistant Professor for Digital Media Industries at the Department of Media & Journalism Studies.
