Following on the heels of April’s event, the Wellcome Trust recently awarded Dr Lucas Richert and Prof Jim Mills £38,700 to carry on and expand upon the work of the Cannabis: Global Histories project. The money will be used to further develop the network and help produce useful knowledge.
The Cannabis: Global Histories web series proved very popular and, of course, there will be more materials in the future. https://pointsadhsblog.wordpress.com/points-library/cannabis-global-histories/ Think about submitting a post or video to Emily Dufton, one of the network’s participants, and also the new Managing Editor of Points.
As for publishing, the MIT Press contracted an edited collection of papers from the first conference in April, 2018. This is a great first step getting the research of the network into wider hands. Watch out for other news about publishing!
Plans are in the works to hold panels at future conferences as well as hold follow-up events. Be sure to stay tuned for an announcement about the next Cannabis: Global Histories event, which will be available @drughistory and @StrathCannabis.
