Event Details

University of Kentucky Visiting Lecturer Rita Basuray presents a fascinating overview of humanity, culture, and science based on the popular book "The History of the World in Six Glasses" (Bob Standage, Bloomsbury Publishing, 2009). This book links major turning points in human history with six drinks, from Coca-Cola to beer. What effects have these beverages had on our bodies, our lifestyles, and our civilization?


Rita Basuray, PhD, is a visiting lecturer in the College of Arts and Sciences. She teaches courses that combine topics in science and humanities. Her education and research background is in human physiology.

Details: The cost of this course, $15.99, includes one complimentary drink ticket for West Sixth Brewery.
