Philippe Bourgois on Radio Times

Monday, 14 December at 10:00 am

 

University of Pennsylvania anthropologist Philippe Bourgois spent 12 years studying, learning from and often living with a community of homeless heroin addicts and crack smokers in San Francisco. With photographer Jeff Schonberg, he documented their lives, survival mechanisms and perspectives, and their groundbreaking work of ethnography, called “Righteous Dopefiend,” is captured in book form and in the Penn Museum exhibition Righteous Dopefiend. Philippe Bourgois  is featured on Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane to help us understand the dynamics of what he calls “a community of addicted bodies.”
