Postdoctoral researcher in the history of medicine
Zoë Dubus is a postdoctoral researcher in the history of medicine at the College of Arts and Science, Department of History, University of Saskatchewan, Canada. She received a Banting fellowship from SSHRC for this research, which aims to rediscover the pioneering work of several women therapists who proposed new ways of practicing LSD-assisted psychotherapy in the 1950s to 1970s, before being invisibilized. The author of numerous publications, her research focuses more generally on the transformations in medical practices and health policies linked to the use of psychotropic drugs, from the nineteenth century to the present day. Her work aims to understand the relationship between doctors and psychotropic drugs, conceived alternatively as innovative medicines or toxic substances.
