Psychedelic Studies Society


Who we are

King’s Society for Psychedelic Studies is a student group concerned with academic discussion, research and theory pertaining to the following areas: (a) the ‘psychedelic states of consciousness’; (b) the specific chemical agents and behavioural practices that induce these states; and (c) the ways in which these states and agents relate to broader social, medical, political and historical contexts.

Though the lecture series hosted by the society will be interdisciplinary, the themes will include:

  • Psychedelics as potential treatments in clinical psychiatry
  • Cross-cultural studies of people and psychedelics
  • Philosophy of the psychedelic state
  • Use of psychedelics in spiritual traditions and practice
  • Literary history of altered states of consciousness
  • Neuropharmacology of psychedelic compounds

The Society for Psychedelic Studies will arrange career development workshops for young researchers, help develop links for research funding, and host a regular open lecture series.
