The Revival of Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy
My most recent project examines a movement of scientists who are trying to bring back medical research with psychedelic drugs. Based on archival data, fieldwork, and interviews, I find that today’s psychedelic researchers narrate cautionary tales about past controversies to resolve a series of lingering legitimacy crises from an earlier failed era of psychedelic therapy. By linking the study of social movements to the study of expert systems, I offer new insights into how social actors generate transformations in expertise.
