Raving Anthropology - Drug use, harm reduction and dance music culture: A grad student jumps in the deep end
Hi, I’m Hilary. I’m an anthropology PhD student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. My Master’s research, which was the inception for this blog, was on on the subject of drug use, harm reduction and electronic dance music culture in Toronto. (I usually call it rave culture for short but I do know how contentious the term ‘rave’ can be.)
I started this blog as a way of engaging with fellow ravers and the communities I’m working with, both online and in Toronto. Tell me when you think I’m right, wrong, missing something or completely full of shit. Academic research needs to be a much more transparent process, so this is my attempt at helping to bridge that gap.
A nice example of blog made for a certain academic purpose. This is excellent.
