A Woman’s Drink? Gender & the Global History of the Tea Shop

May 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Karpeles Manuscript Library

In this talk, Professor Erika Rappaport of the UCSB History Department explores how tea shops emerged in the 18th century and came to be defined as “women’s spaces” in 19th century and early 20th century Europe and North America — but as “male spaces” in parts of Africa and South Asia. These institutions helped build mass markets but also shaped the “gendered” meanings surrounding selling and drinking tea.

Original manuscripts will be on display.
