Description

In this course we will explore the role of urban cafés in the formation of modern Jewish culture during the late 19th and 20th century in Eastern and Central Europe, North-America and Israel. Since the dawn of modernity, cafés played a key role as spaces of political, financial, scientific and literary exchange. The public space of cafes especially appealed to Jews, so much so that in many places Jews became identified with café culture. As Jews migrated to new cities, urban cafés functioned as a “silk road” of modern Jewish creativity. We will examine historical, literary, journalistic and autobiographical texts, as well as photographs, artworks, architecture and design.
