MIT Press Live! Event with Nancy Campbell

Join us for a discussion with the author of 
OD: Naloxone and the Politics of Overdose

Event Description

For years, drug overdose was unmentionable in polite society. OD was understood to be something that took place in dark alleys—an ugly death awaiting social deviants—neither scientifically nor clinically interesting. But over the last several years, overdose prevention has become the unlikely object of a social movement, powered by the miracle drug naloxone.

In OD, Nancy Campbell charts the emergence of naloxone as a technological fix for overdose and describes the remaking of overdose into an experience recognized as common, predictable, patterned—and, above all, preventable. Join us for a live author talk with Nancy Campbell to learn more about overdose prevention, the history of an unnatural disaster, and how COVID-19 might make tackling addiction even harder today.
