ANSO Senior Speaker this year is Dr. Joanna Kempner, a sociologist at Rutgers University. Kempner’s research investigates knowledge production as cultural work, inscribed with and shaped by tacit assumptions about social relations across gender, race, and class. Her award-winning book, Not Tonight: Migraine and the Politics of Gender and Health (Chicago 2014), examines the social values embedded in the way we talk about, understand, and make policies for people in pain.
This Tuesday, March 5, Dr. Kempner is giving a public lecture on her current research about citizen scientists who use psychedelic medicine to treat pain. Please join us in Griffin 5 at 7pm for her talk, “Citizen Science in the Psychedelic Renaissance: Surviving Pain during Prohibition.”
