Hybrid Roundtable: Psychedelic Baselines




Poster image for Psychedelic Pasts, Presents, & Futures

In this hybrid roundtable, titled “Psychedelic Baselines,” a group of interdisciplinary panelists with different types of “psychedelic expertise” will discuss their research and recent activities. The panel will outline key questions in the psychedelic renaissance, why these questions matter to people in the US and beyond, and what the Borghesi-Mellon workshop might provide. Additionally, the panel will consider challenges within the contemporary psychedelic realm that need addressing in the months and years ahead. The roundtable will also provide a baseline of understanding for those coming to the workshop from adjacent disciplines or fields outside of psychedelics. All are welcome to attend via Zoom (registration link provided below), but please be in touch with Amanda Pratt ( to secure an in-person spot.

Participants on the panel come from mixed disciplinary backgrounds, with a goal of fostering conversations about psychedelics in society from within and outside of psychedelic clinical science and drug development to generate a deeper understanding of the future.

The Borghesi-Mellon program is sponsored by the UW Center of the Humanities: “Since 2000, the Center’s Workshops in the Humanities have provided an opportunity for students and faculty to work together outside of the classroom, in working groups centered on an interdisciplinary topic, broadly conceived, drawn from any period, field, or method of research in the humanities…the Workshops have led to conferences, books, teaching innovations, and the creation of long-term research centers and projects.”
