Friday, April 23
Speaker: Helena Hansen, MD, PHD, UCLA
Professor and Chair, Research Theme in Translational Social Science & Health Equity at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine

Title: “Whiteout: How Racial Capitalism Changed the Color of Heroin in America”
Time: 3:30 pm
Location: Virtual, ZOOM, registration link here
SBS Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series

Abstract:
This talk draws from Hansen's forthcoming book Whiteout: How Racial Capitalism Changed the Color of Heroin in America. Whiteout deploys ethnographic and historical analysis of pharmaceutical manufacturers, regulators, neuroscientists and addiction physicians to track technologies of whiteness in neuroscience, pharmaceutical development, regulation and marketing, that stem from drug policies that date back over a century. Based on a decade of participant observation, interviews and archival research, Whiteout updates theories of racial capitalism to reveal how biotechnological industries are driven by white consumption rather than black labor.
