Graduate Student Travel Award Winner: Richard Karl Deang

The Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Study Group is happy to announce the winner of our 2018 Graduate Student Travel Award: Richard Karl Deang!

Richard is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Virginia.  The paper he will be presenting at the AAAs, Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitical Ontologies: HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis and the Anti-Drug War in the Philippines, will examine how drugs, including HIV medication, categorize different subjects in terms of their capacity for self-government and their value to the national population.

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, pharmaceuticals, or other psychoactive substance use.  Please join us in congratulating Richard on his excellent contribution to our field!
