Andrew’s research interests concern the intersection of psychedelic drugs and American culture, broadly asking “what is the work that drugs do, and what is the work their representations do?” Of particular interest are the articulations of drugs and power, drugs and reality, and drugs and risk. He approaches this research by turning to journalistic and artistic representations of drug use, abuse, and addiction in print, film, and television media from the Depression era to the present.
