ANTH106 Essay

77/100 Changing Representations of Illicit Drug use, trafficking and addiction portrayed through film and music Distinction Susan Boyd’s Plain and Pleasure (2011) aims to explore the differing representations of drug consumption, trafficking and addiction through film and music from texts stretching between 1920’s to 2010’s, as a means to understand the complexity of such representations within popular culture. Boyd presents views about drugs use and dealing, through texts of film and music. There’s an emphasise on drugs being dangerous and causing violence but also explores the aspects of bringing pleasure. This contradicts Robin Bunton and John Conveney In Pursuit of the Study of Pleasure: Implications for Health Research and Practice as they expounded that representations of drugs varied from culture to culture (2003). Boyd however disagrees with such views, ultimately arguing that the differing representations point more to alternative awareness and drug policies in different cultures (2011, 69).

Final Assignment Sociological Realities for Drug users

This student studied:
Macquarie University - ANTH106 - Drugs Across Culture

Environments of drug exchange are embedded with political and cultural meaning. This is evident when we objectively analyse concepts that drive and characterise such exchanges. Furthermore, ethnographic studies allow us to understand the implications of these environments for those involved. Through ongoing submersion into environments where these exchanges take place, we can further understand the complex social mechanisms that characterise and shape given subcultures. This is evident in Robyn Dwyer’s 11-month ethnographic study of the Vietnamese heroin trade. Dwyer (2011) used cigarette exchange to establish the trust of those most submersed in the heroin marketplace and thus gained access to it herself. In doing so, Dwyer (2011) re-evaluates the context in which these individuals operate and draws similarities between the illicit heroin exchange and the legitimate cigarette marketplace. From her experiences Dwyer (2011) indicates the symbolic role heroin exchange plays in creating and affirming social hierarchies, maintaining relationships and facilitating social connection within the group. Evidently, when the social implications of drug exchange are fully understood, the relevant holes in current drug policies and perceptions become salient.
