Dr. Georgina Ramsay publishes article with an international anthropology blog

Last month I stepped into a different Starbucks in Philadelphia, only four blocks over from the now-infamous site of the arrest incident, with Robert. It had been his choice to go to the Starbucks to get some coffee and to talk in more depth about his life than we could on the surrounding street, which is where we usually meet and talk in between the gentle rumble of Robert asking people who pass, “Spare some change?” Making conversation somewhat loudly in the otherwise quiet café as we finished preparing our coffee, I felt the glances of other patrons glide over us in that looking-but-not-looking way that people do. - an excerpt from the article.  To read the full article on Allegra Lab click here.
