Narcotic City Newsletter

Governing the Narcotic City

While 2021 continues to be dominated by the global COVID-19 pandemic, the “Governing the Narcotic City” team has been extremely busy nevertheless, with multiple research and dissemination activities ranging from lectures and workshops to interviews, as well as gathering and analyzing archival material.

In this newsletter, you can read about symposiums in the “Drugs, Genders, Cities” cycle held in Bordeaux, a public lecture by Peter-Paul Bänziger on drug consumption in Zurich, and our new Associated Partner Philine Edbauer from the initiative#mybrainmychoice.

Furthermore, with the opening of the Narcotic City Archive fast approaching in late 2021, we are delighted to offer a preview of a few of its items and themes with the story of the Hash Rebels and the fight for alternative spaces in West Berlin in the late 1960s, as well as the story of weed grinders and their ubiquity in Berlin Spätis.
