dc.description.abstractAcademic scholarship on the Grateful Dead and the Deadheads has been powerful, interdisciplinary, and surprisingly prolific. Equally surprising, however, is the almost complete absence of historical analysis through the lens of material culture. In this paper, I hope to show how by working to understand this colorful, eye-catching material culture, we can better understand the ways Deadheads produced and reproduced their Deadhead identity within a specific historical context.en_US
