Graduate Student Paper Prize Winner: Sydney Silverstein

The Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Study Group is happy to announce the winner of our 2018 Graduate Student Paper Prize: Sydney Silverstein!

Sydney is recent graduate of the Ph.D. program of the Department of Anthropology at Emory University.  Her award-winning paper, A Second Chance: Re-enactment, Excess Meaning, and the Social Worlds of PBC in Iquitos, examines how addicts at a drug treatment center in Peru construct their drug recovery narratives through a re-enactment film aimed at conveying their drug-using lives and decisions to seek recovery.

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