CFPanelists SHEAR 2017: Alcohol and Conflict

Brian Alberts's picture


I am organizing a panel around the theme "Alcohol and Conflict." Professor Scott Martin of Bowling Green State University and Professor John Quist of Shippensburg University have generously agreed to serve as panel commentator and chair, respectively, and we are seeking additional panelists.

My own contribution will examine how German-American communities in Chicago and Cincinnati used beer production and consumption to navigate the market revolution and make citizenship claims during the 1850s. If you are interested in submitting a paper with this panel, please contact me at

Best wishes,

Brian Alberts
