ANTH 271 - Cultural Politics of Drugs


This course examines drug use in various historical and cultural contexts and introduces anthropological conceptions of culture, cultural politics, race, and class. Readings and films focus on illegal and legal drugs in a variety of situations: the making of modern Europe, American inner-city economics and South American culture and politics, the United States war on drugs, drug education and propaganda, the American youth rebellion of the 1960s, the medical marijuana movement, and the struggle of Native Americans to secure legal protection for the religious use of peyote.
