I was wondering if anyone on these lists might be able to help me with this
I'm doing research in the representation of drugs on television in the late
60's (specifically LSD on Dragnet, as Screen-L people have already been
asked about). Does anyone know of any work that has been done on drugs and
culture from a theoreticized perspective? I know there are billions of
things about drug culture, etc., but I'm more interested in a theoretical
analysis of the role of drugs in culture in terms of production of meaning.
My theoretical bent involves issues of Bakhtinian transgression and
grotesque as well as Foucault's bodily control, but I'd be open to any
theoretical angle that might prove fruitful.
thanks in advance!
