Amadeus Harte is a medical anthropologist working at the intersection of psychological and neuroanthropology to investigate the experiences of participants in clinical trials for psychedelics to treat trauma, depression, and addiction. What can the psychedelic experience teach us about consciousness and healing? Is there a potential for social models of healing with psychedelics? How are psychiatry and medical models of human suffering changing with revitalized research on these chemicals?
Previously, she worked at the intersection of political, economic, and material anthropology to understand dynamics of power and agency via exchanges of care and value outside market economies.
Before coming to Princeton, she read Anthropology at St. Hugh’s College Oxford, Summa Cum Laude, and Philosophy and Sociology at Trinity College Dublin, where she graduated Valedictorian.
