This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Using rarely-seen images drawn from the High Society exhibition he curated at the Wellcome Collection and his accompanying book, Mike Jay will explore the spectrum of mind-altering substances across the globe and throughout history. He will trace the story from the traditional use of plant intoxicants to global trade and the development of pharmacy, and examine how the cultural meaning of 'drugs' has been altered in the process.
