Student Profile: Heather Henderson

Here is the latest installment of ADTSG’s student profiles feature!

These profiles are a way for the ADTSG membership to become acquainted with the next generation of anthropologists of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco.  In this vein, each profile will introduce one graduate or undergraduate student to the group by asking them a series of questions related to their background and career aspirations in this field.

In this installment, we are profiling Heather Henderson, a Ph.D. student from the University of South Florida.

Why did you choose to study anthropology?

I am not sure if I chose to study anthropology, so much as anthropology chose me. When I first started out, I did not know much about college — only that I loved literature and wanted to be a writer.  A professor at my community college scoffed at this goal, assuring me that writers made no money. Hadn’t I heard the phrase “starving artist”? I would be much better off if I switched to a STEM major so that I could “actually find a job.” So, the next week, I changed my major to environmental science. With this major, I was able to begin thinking about the world in a more scientific way, learn how to form hypotheses and conduct research, and understand the world around me. In the second year of my associate degree, I was fortunate enough to be selected to work with a Department of Energy laboratory one summer in Tennessee, as an intern on a climate change project. This was cutting edge research into understanding the global carbon and nitrogen cycle in relation to overall climate change — but as I sifted red clay soil for six weeks because roots responded better to sifted soil, I couldn’t help feeling like something was missing. The lab environment was fascinating for sure, but where was that human component? As it came time to begin the second half of my undergraduate degree, I felt adrift and unsure as the please select your major box stared at me from my application screen. On the list was anthropology. I remembered reading something earlier about forensic anthropology that seemed incredibly interesting, so I checked the box with the reasoning that I could always change my major if it was not a good fit. Here we are six years later, and I could not imagine another framework for my research and how I see the world. The work that I do now relies so heavily on culture and lived experiences, and I am certain that the reason the applications of my research have been so successful is due to its anthropological framing.  I arrived at medical anthropology in a rather circuitous route from environmental ethnobotany, but heroin research is a reasonable segue from botany, right? And it would appear that I was also able to become a writer too, after all.

Why are you interested in alcohol, drugs, and tobacco research?

I bring a great deal of lived experience with me to this research; every member of my immediate family has an active, ongoing substance use disorder (opioid use disorder, alcohol use disorder, and polysubstance, respectively). I have seen firsthand the complex interplay of poverty, criminality, and lack of access to basic needs and healthcare, and I believe this has given me a definitive edge. Not only in being able to emically connect with patients, but also by utilizing my academic and professional training to connect with providers and community leaders to bring together the village it requires to provide appropriate care for this and other marginalized patient populations.

And on a practical level, the ability to provide translation services between patients and providers to ensure access to care and a smooth emergency department encounter, when a patient sees a doctor who will not care for them and a doctor who sees a patient that is not having an emergency. Ultimately my goal is to develop a community of care, one that allows us to follow these patients through a system that is currently difficult to navigate, that ensures long term stability, care, and recovery in a way that is compassionate, empowering, and provides autonomy over the healthcare and recovery experience.

What are your research plans for studying alcohol, drugs, and tobacco?

My dissertation focuses on how medical anthropology can work in tandem with emergency medicine to co-create clinical treatment pathways in a hospital setting for socially complex disease states (with a focus on substance use disorders). These treatment pathways would function as a cultural bridge between patients who seek acute care for illness, and emergency medicine physicians (and others) who treat them but find no acute disease. My dissertation centers on one such pathway built in a level one trauma center for opioid use disorder, and the implementation of medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) in emergency rooms.

By having a treatment pathway and protocol that appear very clinical and direct, providers are able to feel comfortable addressing the complex social and structural facets of illness in addition to the biological implications of disease that comprised the bulk of their training. Further, these pathways also function as a stigma buster because it moves substance use disorders into the “legitimate” sphere with other chronic relapsing disorders treated in the emergency department (e.g. diabetes, hypertension, and asthma). By building out these culturally salient clinical tools, we are able to switch an encounter comprised of moral failing on the patient side, to business as usual on the provider side where the patient receives everything they need to stabilize and access both acute and downstream care.

What do you hope to do after you graduate?

I hope to continue my work in emergency medicine building out new pathways that address gaps in care for marginalized patient populations, along with my work in the community. We are hard at work to scale up our MOUD pathway into emergency departments across Florida. A next novel step now that COVID has illustrated that Telehealth really works, is starting a home induction pathway for patients that come in as an overdose and cannot receive MOUD in the emergency department. Telehealth would allow us to discharge them with a prescription and induce them virtually, bridging them to their treatment provider appointment in the community. Further, harm reduction is definitely one of my passions. We are excited to be launching a syringe service program very soon here in Tampa that will provide a broad array of services to keep people safe and healthy if/until they become ready for treatment.

CFP – New Directions in Critical Drug Scholarship Inspired by David Moore

Call for Papers – Special Issue of Contemporary Drug Problems

Fault/Lines: New Directions in Critical Drug Scholarship Inspired by the Work of David Moore and Colleagues

Editors: Kate Seear and kylie valentine

In 2020, Professor David Moore stepped-down as Editor of the journal Contemporary Drug Problems. Throughout his career and then during his decade at the journal’s helm, David has helped oversee an explosion of more critically oriented drug scholarship, including work which challenges and destabilises taken-for-granted assumptions about the effects and putative harms of alcohol and other drugs. This work – often in collaboration with Professor Suzanne Fraser, amongst others – has helped open up new and pressing questions regarding how drugs are problematised; how the complexities of alcohol and other drug use can be attended to; how drug use might be understood as event, assemblage or phenomenon; and how drugs and their effects are constituted in various forms of practice. This work takes inspiration from numerous theoretical traditions, including feminist science and technology studies, new materialisms and post-humanism, and has brought the work of scholars such as John Law, Bruno Latour, Karen Barad and Isabelle Stengers into the drugs field. In this sense, David’s scholarship also emphasises the importance of introducing sociological, anthropological and related theories and perspectives to the drugs field, which tends to remain siloed from broader currents in social sciences.

Originally trained in anthropology, David has championed the value of ethnographic work on drugs, identifying the cultural logics of practices too often seen as ‘disordered’ or ‘chaotic’, while drawing attention to the unacknowledged assumptions and normative understandings that continue to shape research and policy in the area. He has developed these observations while covering a broad range of research areas, in terms of drugs (amphetamine-type substances including ecstasy, heroin, cannabis, alcohol, performance and image enhancing drugs), settings (youth, street-based, clubs and raves, social networks, policy, services and systems, treatment, outreach, supervised injecting facilities) and topics (injecting drug use, ‘addiction’/ ‘dependence’, overdose, sex work, hepatitis C, social theory, gender, stigma, drug markets, research funding, subcultures/scenes, identities).

Although David’s scholarship is extensive and varied, two ideas have been especially prominent and influential. The first is that although we attribute various social problems to drug use – including gendered forms of violence and other criminal behaviours – these effects are not as widespread, stable or clear-cut as we imagine. Thus, the second, related point, is that we need to rethink who and what is assigned responsibility or agency for these problems, and acknowledge that simplistic assumptions regarding fault can foreclose other ways of thinking and addressing social problems, such as violence against women. In this respect, David’s work problematises conceptualisations of ‘fault’, and the points of connection drawn between alcohol, other drugs and other social phenomena. It disrupts and challenges conventional fault/lines.

This special issue seeks to consolidate and expand critical drug scholarship of this kind, through further and more explicit engagement with the various fault/lines of contemporary drug policy, research, practice and law. We are seeking empirical and theoretical contributions which progress these ideas, including work which:

  • Identifies sites in which orthodox ways of thinking regarding drugs and drug effects remain persistent, and explores the reasons why, or how things might be otherwise;
  • Proposes radical new possibilities for rethinking causality, change, agency, responsibility or accountability within policy, law, research or practice, including through new methodologies and theoretical frameworks;
  • Examines what is at stake when fault/lines are produced and reproduced or disrupted, including through specific case studies where these lines have been challenged.

We welcome research from those working in all relevant fields, including anthropology, cultural studies, epidemiology, history, public policy, gender studies, sociology and law, and encourage the innovative use of methods, concepts and theoretical tools.

To be considered for this special issue, please send an abstract of 250-300 words to cdp@latrobe.edu.au by October 30, 2020. Abstracts will be reviewed by November 30, 2020. A limited number of contributors will then be invited to submit a full paper for the special issue. If selected for the special issue, contributors must submit their full paper for peer review by Friday, April 2, 2021.

Graduate Student Paper Prize Winner: Parsa Bastani

The Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Study Group is happy to announce the winner of our 2020  Graduate Student Paper Prize: Parsa Bastani!

Parsa is currently a Ph.D. student at Brown University. His award-winning paper, Feeling at Home in the Clinic: Therapeutics and Dwelling in an Addiction Rehabilitation Center in Tehran, Iran, examines the experiences of women residing at a free drug rehabilitation center in the Iranian capital.  By focusing on community life at this center, he argues that patients’ abilities to form mutual relations of care and concern with others in therapeutic settings can serve as a key component of rehabilitation for women who have experienced family and social abandonment.

The ADTSG Graduate Student Paper Prize is an annual award that recognizes the best graduate student paper in the anthropology of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or other psychoactive substance use. Please join us in congratulating Parsa on his excellent work and contribution to our field!

In this installment, we are profiling Gabrielle Lehigh, a Ph.D. student from the University of South Florida.

Why did you choose to study anthropology?

When I started my undergraduate degree, I didn’t know I wanted to study anthropology. I just knew I wanted to do something that helped people. With the direction of an English professor, I took an anthropology course in my second semester and fell in love. My first exposure to anthropology was very insightful and opened my mind to critical thinking. It made me challenge deep-seated notions of truth, reality, and what it means to be human. This first introduction also made me see the concept of diversity in a more tangible way. I was able to conceptualize that each person is uniquely different from every other person. This also means that every person’s perspective of reality and what it means to be human is distinct from anyone else’s. Essentially this means there is an infinite number of possible life experiences, and I wanted to study all of them. Anthropology gives me a framework for being able to learn about many life experiences while also helping me to share the beauty of human diversity with the rest of the world. So, in many ways, anthropology feeds my inquisitive nature to learn about everything and anything. At the same time, anthropology gives me the tools for identifying and addressing real-world social problems, which allows me to meet my goal of helping people.

Why are you interested in alcohol, drugs, and tobacco research?

I am interested in the non-clinical use of psychedelics. There is an exceptional amount of clinical research on the medical benefits of psychedelics, which is very important for expanding access to treatment. At the same time, even with expanded medical access, many populations will be unable to access these treatments. Insurance coverage, social stigma, distrust in the medical system, and various other factors will inhibit accessibility. The purpose of my research is to inform harm reduction practices for non-clinical psychedelic use and advocate for expanded access for all populations outside of clinical settings.

What are your research plans for studying alcohol, drugs, and tobacco?

My dissertation research examines alternative psychedelic uses and practices. Specifically, my project looks at non-clinical psychedelic use, such as spiritual, recreational, and medicinal practices. The goal of my research is to collect ethnographic narratives of psychedelic use in a diversity of settings. My research will use these narratives to identify variables, such as set and setting, that may influence different types of psychedelic experiences. Some of my research questions are how do individuals and groups of people use psychedelics, what factors contribute to various outcomes of psychedelic use, and how do psychedelic users define beneficial and averse psychedelic experiences? With this information, the project aims to inform harm reduction strategies and policies for non-clinical psychedelic use.

What do you hope to do after you graduate?

I would love to continue studying the alternative uses of psychedelics to inform policy and practice. I am also interested in developing new perspectives of psychedelics as a way to expand human consciousness. I think there is value in looking at the power of psychedelics to alter perspectives of humanism and humanity. To do this, I want to develop research that examines the effects of psychedelics in novel settings, such as astronauts in space or athletes performing in extreme sports.

CFP – Psychedelics, Madness, and Awakening Conference

Call for Papers and Presentations

Psychedelics, Madness, and Awakening: Harm Reduction and Future Visions

October 2020
Online Conference

Statement of Values: As an alliance of academics, practitioners, activists and people with lived experience of mental distress and non-normative states, we are committed to honoring historically, culturally, inter- and intra-personally marginalized voices. We stand in solidarity with past and present uprisings against white supremacy and other ongoing forms of colonization, and we support calls for an end to psychiatric brutality and incarceration.

The overlaps in the experiences produced by psychedelics and those labeled ‘psychotic’, ‘manic’ or ‘schizophrenic’ have a long history pre-dating modern psychiatry. Psychedelic prohibition at the end of the 1960s brought a rigid polarization against states considered “psychotic” in biomedical, underground, and “spiritual emergence” discourses. Psychedelics caused madness for the “ego weak” or were too dangerous for anyone who had ever gone mad – or had a family member who went mad. Yet despite prevailing views of strict contraindication, people with experiences diagnosed as manic, bipolar, or psychotic continue to take psychedelics, and some people with these diagnoses have found these substances useful for healing and recovery. This conference proposes that in this era of psychedelic revival, it is time to re-examine this rigid polarization and ask what future visions of harm reduction we might collectively imagine.

We invite papers, presentations, and personal contributions that explore how psychedelics and entheogens are, have been and could be understood in relation to madness, including experiences called psychosis, bipolar, and schizophrenia. The event will be donation-based and we hope to make this conversation accessible to a wide range of participants and communities.

To that end we welcome proposals from:

  • scholars in diverse fields, including history, anthropology, religious studies and mad studies
  • people with lived experience of madness
  • scientists and researchers
  • clinicians and therapists
  • ceremony leaders and guides
  • psychiatric survivor-researchers
  • psychonauts, artists, and other creative visionaries
  • festival goers and supporters
  • harm reduction/drug policy reform advocates and prison-industrial-complex (PIC) abolitionists
  • the broad psychedelic, mad pride and survivor communities

We hope to include presentations and discussions around the following themes and questions:

  • Histories and legacies of anti-psychiatry and their intersection with romanticized narratives about indigenous traditions, shamanism, and mysticism
  • The racial inequities of psychedelics, madness, and spirituality, including racialized histories of incarceration in penal and psychiatric contexts. How do these histories intersect with other historical and structural inequities including gender, class, and ableism? What visions do we want to realize for the decolonization of pharmaceutical and medical institutions?
  • What issues surround medicalization in both the psychedelic and mad/psychiatric survivor’s communities? How do critical analyses of medicalization in both the psychedelic and mad/psychiatric survivor communities intersect with one another?
  • When might extreme experiences be seen as spiritually meaningful or transformative, and who decides? How do these experiences help us re-imagine spirituality and mysticism, spiritual ‘crisis’, ‘spiritual emergency’, ‘initiation’, and ‘awakening’?
  • How is the current rehabilitation of psychedelics rendering some altered states as acceptable, while others are (re)pathologized?
  • How could shifting discourses in mainstream psychiatry around psychotic disorders be brought into conversation with emerging medical discourses on psychedelics?
  • Harm reduction practices and community resources for working with people in extreme states, including those with prior diagnoses, states triggered by difficult trips, within spiritual and ceremonial contexts and in the midst of public health crises such as COVID-19.
  • The enrollment of psychedelic substances into past, current, and new forms of psychiatric brutality, including clinical drug testing of psychedelics​
  • Sexual and therapeutic violence in both the psychedelic and mad/psychiatric survivors communities: how can we learn from the past and create new community care approaches?
  • What are the intersections between psychedelic capitalism and psychiatric capitalism?
  • Similarities and differences in supporting and holding space for madness and psychedelic experiences
  • Personal psychedelic accounts, including experiences understood as a form of madness and those that go beyond simple salvation narratives
  • Death and grief work surrounding friends and family members harmed by psychedelic use or psychiatric care
  • Legal considerations for working with extreme experiences, including community models as alternatives to existing legal structures

Please submit 200-300 word descriptions of papers, presentations, performance art pieces, films, personal testimonies, and art/video installations by July 15, 2020.

In addition to the description, we invite you to share a little bit about yourself and your interest in the conference. Live on-line participation at the event or pre-recorded submissions are welcome. Invitations to participate will be sent out by August 1, 2020 and formal scheduling of the event will be based on participants’ availability.

To submit a proposal, please email the conference organizers at psychedelicsandmadness@gmail.com

CFP – Socio-Materiality of Drug Control and Prevention

 

Call for Extended Abstracts – Special Section of Contemporary Drug Problems

The Socio-Materiality of Drug Control and Prevention

Guest Editors: Bettina Paul and Simon Egbert

Fundamentally, drug control and prevention practices rely on a material infrastructure. Ranging from the installation of alcohol-interlock-systems in cars to devices simulating thealcohol experience (e.g., ‘drunk goggles’), from drug-testing programs to photo-morphing in prevention campaigns (e.g., ‘F aces of Meth’), these practices all aim to prevent and/or identify the use of psychoactive substances, although their technical mediation as well as their rationales (e.g., deterrence, simulated experience) differ.

Despite this ubiquity, there is little research analyzing the omnipresence and efficacy of technological and material influences in the field of drug prevention and control (e.g., Gomart& Hennion, 1999; Gomart, 2004; Campbell, 2004, 2005, 2006; Herschinger, 2015). Therefore, by bringing together empirical findings and theoretical analyses from a multitude of disciplines, this special issue aims to initiate and set the ground for a focused discussion on the relationship between drug control and prevention strategies and their material infrastructure – as fundamental prerequisites for materializing drug consumption and/or impairment in the first place.

We especially encourage the submission of articles that reflect on the socio-material infrastructure of drug control and prevention practices by using approaches that are sensitized towards the agency and/or efficacy of artifacts and/or technical infrastructures – for example, from science and technology studies, feminist technoscience, new materialism,and material culture studies. The special issue is open to papers that undertake the analysis of single technologies as well as to comparative analyses of different technologies. It also encourages a focus on common politics, epistemic regimes, or scripts in and behind these artifacts or materially mediated practices.

Relevant questions to be addressed in the special issue may include but are not limited to:

  • How is drug use labeled as (mis)use by utilizing technical instruments and/or material infrastructures (e.g., drug tests, laboratories, etc.)?
  • How do inscribed standards (Akrich, 1992) – like threshold values – for (in)appropriate alcohol or other drug use manifest materially and what effects does this have on bringing drug (mis)use into being?
  • How can the ‘chain of translation’ (Latour, 1995) of alcohol or other drug testing be empirically reconstructed (e.g., from first indicator to end result)?
  • What sociotechnical imaginaries (Jasanoff, 2015) can be extracted from the sociomaterial drug control and/or prevention measures?
  • How are (material) bodies used as information resources in order to detect drug (mis)use? (van der Ploeg, 2005; Aas, 2006)?
  • Where are the conflicts between material trust, or mechanical objectivity (Daston & Galison, 2007), and human distrust – or vice-versa?
  • Which kinds of technical/material mediation support the self-governance of drug control and how do consumers feel about this?
  • What kinds of resistance strategies can be identified (e.g., the adulteration of drug testing samples)?

Timeline

  • Extended abstract submission deadline: August 31, 2020
  • Notification of acceptance: September 30, 2020
  • Deadline for full papers: February 28, 2021
  • The special issue is expected to be published in late 2021.

Submission Process

Please send your extended abstract (1000 words max.) to the guest editors. The authors of the selected submissions will be invited to submit a full paper (10,000 words max.) by February 28, 2021, via the online submission system of Contemporary Drug Problems. The submitted full papers will then undergo double-blind peer review. For the preparation of the full paper, authors should consult the journal’s manuscript guidelines.
