5 > 9 NOVEMBER 2019
INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM, REIMS
CONFERENCES // FILM // CONCERT // AFTERWORK PROHIBITION


An immersion in the mythical period of America's prohibition in the 1920s.


The Georges Chappaz Institute of Vine and Wine in Champagne is organizing from 5 to 9 November 2019 an international symposium on Prohibition, one hundred years after the beginning of this remarkable period in the United States.

Beyond the conference, the Institute and its partners are planning a series of events, all related to the period of Prohibition, so that the territory of Reims as a whole is marked, for a week, by this event.

Conferences, film-debate, concerts, special evenings are on the program.

The researchers will comment on the subject of Prohibition and its consequences, still visible today, and on the more global issue that regularly opposes the ban and responsible consumption of alcohol.

Law and Political Science, Economics, History, Ethics, etc. are the main disciplines chosen by the scientific council to build this symposium and invite international researchers.

More unexpected topics, but still related to Prohibition, will be the subject of specific communications.
