LIR Event “Beer And Brewing in Wisconsin”

November 15, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

This lecture by Women’s Studies Professor Susan Rensing will explore the rich history of beer and brewing in Wisconsin. Using beer as a lens, we will analyze how new immigrants shaped Wisconsin culture and the anti-immigrant sentiment that fueled the temperance movement and Prohibition. We will also discuss some of the materials in brewery archives around the state and what UW Oshkosh students have been doing with these
materials in their course, History of Beer in the United States, during the fall 2016 semester.
