Course Description

Coffee is a ubiquitous beverage that we usually take for granted without reflecting on the impact it has on our culture(s). We will take a closer look at it, specifically the places that it is frequently – & publicly – consumed in, the cafes. Be those traditional cafes (the coffeehouses in Vienna come to mind) or rather recent developments such as Starbucks. In this course we will try to find out their function in our culture(s), to find out whether cafes are, as Ray Oldenburg puts it, "hangouts at the heart of a community". For this we will take a look at the US and Germany, but especially also the perspective of the International Summer Program participants will give us valuable insights. This course is particularly recommended for students of the Angewandte Studiengänge.
