ALL IN THE MIND:
GAMBLING ADDICTION AND THE BRAIN
Prof. Rebecca Cassidy
Goldsmiths, University of London
Rebecca Cassidy is a social anthropologist who has worked for many years on horse racing, horse breeding and gambling. Her early work focused on kinship, class and gender in the horse racing cultures of Newmarket and Kentucky. Her recent work, including a European Research Council project which took place between 2010 and 2015, used ethnographic fieldwork to explore gambling across conceptual and territorial borders. She is also interested in the ethics of gambling research. She is co-author, with Claire Loussouarn and Andrea Pisac, of Fair Game, an open access report published in 2014, which used interviews with 109 executives, researchers, policy makers and treatment providers to argue for a more transparent and vibrant gambling research culture. She is currently Head of Department of the Anthropology Department at Goldsmiths, University of London.
