Gemma Blok launches website on new project

Oral history of the Dutch ‘epidemic’ of heroin use

1 May 2015

Dr. Gemma Blok has recently launched a website for her current research project, which is an oral history of the Dutch ‘epidemic’ of heroin use after 1972.

The aims of the project are to enlarge our understanding of the heroin epidemic as a sociocultural phenomenon, and to instigate a historiography of drug use ‘from below’.
