FIRSTS: Coffee

Presenting IWB’s new comic strip column: a space for exploring cross-cultural encounters through the revealing, yet light-hearted lens of humour. “Coffee” is the first a series titled “FIRSTS,” which narrates the cognitive dissonance that internationals experience in their first encounters with various American norms.

If you’d like to contribute a “first” to the series, email iwb@brown.edu with your idea – our graphic designers will help you develop your story into a strip!
