How Coffee Changed the World

A Conversation with Graham School Instructor Esra Tasdelen

Coffee at three stages of the coffeemaking process
Aug 18

About the Event

Join us to learn how coffee emerged as a cultural, social, and economic phenomenon in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region and way beyond. Together, we will explore why coffee and its consumption became a focal point in public spaces in the Ottoman Empire and Europe, as well as how the consumption of coffee acquired significance over time. We will also examine the popular manifestations of coffee culture, such as in literature and cinema, and explore the evolution of coffeehouse culture in the Middle East and North Africa as well as in some parts of Europe. The conversation will preview Dr. Tasdelen’s Autumn course at Graham.
