Join us for a discussion about drug use representation in the media with Hilary Agro! Hilary is a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia in Anthropology whose research covers drug use policy, activism, and the harms of drug prohibition. She is also a self professed rave mom and has a long history of involvement within rave communities and with community organizing around drugs.
In this talk we will be covering the misinformation and disinformation spread by mainstream, corporate media in regards to drugs and analyzing the various moral panics that have been instigated through fear mongering tactics used by the media. We will also be touching on the role that the media has played within the drug war, the influence of colonialism, white supremacy, and the police, as well as the role that independent, grassroots media can play in reshaping these narratives and dispelling the drug myths that we see today.
