Brown Bag Betwixt Brewings: A History of College Students and Alcohol 5 June 2013.Wednesday, 12:00PM - 1:00PM Michael Hevel, University of Arkansas

The project traces the historical roots of contemporary concerns about college students' alcohol use. The brown bag session will specifically focus on college students and alcohol between 1820 and 1860. The diaries that antebellum college men kept reveal students' drinking behaviors, the meanings they made from alcohol, and their reactions to and involvement in the temperance movement.
