International Security Studies continues its Spring 2023 ISS Colloquium series with a presentation by Kaete O’Connell, Assistant Director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy.

A historian of the U.S. and the world, she is currently writing a book that explores American policymakers’ embrace of food as a diplomatic tool in the early Cold War. She will present an article in progress that examines the role of beer in the U.S. occupation of Germany. More than hangovers and headaches, GI consumption of German beer was a PR nightmare and did little to improve civil-military relations in the U.S. Zone where brewing for civilian consumption was forbidden.
