Eat, drink and be civil : sociability and the cafe
Felton, Emma (2012) Eat, drink and be civil : sociability and the cafe. Media/Culture, 15(2), pp. 1-2.
The article investigates the ascendency of the cafe in the current period of urbanism. I suggest that “going for a coffee” is less about coffee and more about how we connect with others in a mobile world, when flexible work hours are increasingly the norm and more people are living alone than any other period in history. The café also plays a role in the development of civil discourse and civility, and plays an important role in the development of cosmopolitan civil societies.
