As you know, I spoke at the wonderful Horizons - Perspectives on Psychedelics conference in New York City last year. It was a fantastic occasion in a beautiful venue, and I was struck by how enagaged with the subject people were, both speakers and punters, how willing they were to ask critical questions. Once again it struck me how far behind we are, here in the UK, and what a long way to go we have before we have a genuine, interdisciplinary Psy-Crit (Critical Psychedelic Studies). Horizons raises the bar.
Well, the line-up has been announced and tickets are on sale and I'm very sorry I shan't be there (this scholar-gypsy lifestyle don't pay the rent, let alone air-fares). But if you're anywhere in the vicinity, I heartily recommend you go.
