Davis explores the complex lattice of the strange that flowed through America’s West Coast at a time of radical technological, political, and social upheaval to present a new theory of the weird as a viable mode for a renewed engagement with reality. In this event, Erik will discuss his latest book and the esoteric/psychedelic cultural backdrop of our current age.
