Phad 355: The Anthropology of Drugs
What is a drug? Is it different from a pharmaceutical? How? What
separates therapeutic use of a drug from abuse? Where do these
substances come from? How are they accessed? Transformed? How do we know
something is effective? Does the development and use of a drug vary
globally or perpetuate inequalities? This course is an anthropological
exploration of such questions.
