What was the importance of the public house within the lives of everyday Romans in the early empire? To everyday Irishmen and Irishwomen of the early late 19th and 20th centuries? To immigrants in the American Midwest? This talk discusses what a social, economic, literary, and spatial understanding of venues designed to serve alcohol can tell us about the communities that they served and the authors who wrote about them.
