About the event
ADHS is proud to host its first meeting in Mexico City. Latin America has always been an important source and exporter of hallucinogens, licit and illicit psychoactive drugs, and various kinds of alcohol. This region exists at a crossroads of ideas, drug products, and policy decisions that have flowed in and out of this region with dramatic consequences for the rest of the world. It has always played a central role in our understanding of intoxicants, from practices to policy. Mexico City is ideally situated as a venue for the Alcohol and Drug History Society’s 2022, biennial conference. Following on from the success of the 2019 ADHS meeting in Shanghai, the Mexico City conference will broaden networks and enhance exciting scholarship on the history of drugs and alcohol, while attracting researchers from all over the world to these timely studies.
