In the late 1800s, guzzling to excess exploded on the heels of the Industrial Revolution. In England, organized anti-drinking groups created startling maps intending to shock people into abstaining from alcohol. Did these lovely temperance tools inspire zealous anger—or did they just make people thirsty? The story of their brief existence will be told amidst a tangle of licensing laws, corrupt temperance organizers, exasperated women, and - of course - several delicious pints of beer. Some of which we will sample in class while admiring the maps. Instructor: Kris Butler
