Join Professor Lisa Gezon (University of Alabama, Birmingham) on a conversation about shifting conversations about psychedelics and their uses in contemporary contexts for self-actualization, mental health therapy, and other forms of ritual and healing. How do experiences vary based on demographics and geography? Are experiences of traditionally marginalized populations different in any noteworthy ways? What do anthropologists have to contribute to that interdisciplinary conversation? Gezon will begin with an overview of her current research on psychedelic integration groups. This topic is a preview of conversations we hope to continue at the AAA in November.
