The Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Study Group is happy to announce the winner of our 2019 Graduate Student Travel Award: Breanne Casper!
Bree is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of South Florida. The paper she will be presenting at the AAAs in Vancouver, Unscripted Change: A Critical Analysis of Rehabilitation Rhetoric in “Natural Recovery,” will examine academic, expert, and cultural constructions of “addiction” and “recovery” to interrogate the rhetoric and practice of drug cessation through “natural recovery.”
The ADTSG Graduate Student Travel Award is an annual award that helps a graduate student attend the AAAs to present a paper that engages questions related to alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or other psychoactive substance use. Please join us in congratulating Bree on his excellent contribution to our field!
