Research looks at 'recreational' drug use in leisure spaces such as bars, nightclubs, dance music events, festivals and domestic settings (ie afterparties/chillouts). The focus is on clubbing and related alcohol, novel psychoactive substances (NPS) and illegal drug use as a leisure practices situated withint the context of the criminalisation and commercialisation of rave/club culture as a national and global phenomenon. Using a variety of methods including in situ self report surveys, qualitiative interviews, focus groups and participant observation, we are attempting to 'build a picture' of club and drug cultures. This includes work on social class, gender, sexuality, 'race' and ethnicity and alcohol/drug use.
For clubbers, by clubbers.
