The Beer Choir is an idea first tried out in 2015 in St. Louis.&nbsp; There are now 10 chapters - including one in the tri-cities in Washington.&nbsp; The concept is that singing goes well with beer.&nbsp;&nbsp; That singing should be possible for anyone to do.&nbsp; That a "beer choir" is most of all - fun!</p><p>Songs from the "beer choir hymnal" will be provided.&nbsp;</p><p>Don't sing well?&nbsp; Not to worry - if you are willing to sing, - as the popular bible verse states:&nbsp; Make a joyful NOISE (not make a cultured, musical sound).&nbsp; Don't read music?&nbsp; No problem.&nbsp; You don't need to.</p></br></br></br>Won't you check out our Fall 2016 Newsletter?, 30 Nov 2016 14:35:11<p>Just released - our 3rd newsletter.&nbsp; Won't you check it out?&nbsp; PLEASE remember to contact us and let us know what you are doing.&nbsp; We love hearing from you!<br><br><a href="/history/sites/">Fall 2016 - 3rd newsletter</a></p></br></br>History club meets this Thursday, October 26, 2016 at 4:30PM, 24 Oct 2016 16:37:16<p>PLEASE come join the History Club at their next meeting coming up this Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 4:30 PM in the Language and Literature lounge-room 106A.</p><p>See the attached flyer for the meetings agenda.</p><p>See you there!</p><p><a href="/history/sites/">Oct 27, 2016 - Meeting Flyer</a></p><p>&nbsp;</p>CAH Third Thursday Thinks Series continues at the Iron Horse Brewery - October 20, 2016, 07 Oct 2016 14:22:23<p><strong>The CWU College of Arts and Humanities and the Iron Horse Brew Pub Present Wicked Smaht: Third Thursday Thinks from the Iron Horse</strong><br>October 20, 7pm, the back room of the Iron Horse Brew Pub.</p><p><strong>Marji Morgan</strong><br>Chair of the Department of Communication Studies and<br>Professor of History will discuss:</p><p><strong>Champagne, Syrah and Coca Cola:&nbsp; Linking History and Winemaking While Tasting</strong><br><br>Books, journals and courses related to food and drink studies have proliferated recently in history and many other disciplines.&nbsp; But it’s not very common to put these three drink types together, whether in a talk or a publication.&nbsp; What can they tell us about history, culture and winemaking?&nbsp; In this talk, Marji Morgan uses these three drinks to illustrate key aspects of WWI historiography and winemaking.&nbsp; All three drinks will be available for tasting.</p></br></br></br></br></br>CAH Third Thursday Thinks Series continues at the Iron Horse Brewery - September 15, 2016, 06 Sep 2016 16:48:21<p><strong>Wicked Smaht: Third Thursday Thinks at the Iron Horse</strong></p><p><strong>September 15, 2016 - 7pm at the Iron Horse Brewery<br>Speaker: Daniel Herman, CWU Department of History<br><em>"Hunting the Hunters: The Origins of American Sport Hunting."</em></strong></p><p>Modern Americans tend to assume that the American hunting tradition came from the nation’s frontier past. Those who settled in what was “wilderness,” after all, had to provide meat for their tables. By examining colonial and early national art and literature, however, Daniel Herman finds that early Americans held contradictory attitudes toward hunting. Though many of them indeed became occasional hunters, they worried that full-time hunting made men “savage” and “indolent.” In his talk on the history of American sport hunting, Herman notes that hunting did not become a part of American identity until the Revolutionary War.</p></br></br>CAH Third Thursday Thinks Series continues at the Iron Horse Brewery - August 18, 2016, 15 Aug 2016 11:44:54<p>The CWU College of Arts and Humanities and the Iron Horse Brewery present the next in the Wicked Smaht: Third Thursday Thinks from the Iron Horse.
