Date and time: 16th December 2020, 16:00-17:00 London time
This is our first Autism Online Journal Club. Our aim is to provide a platform to showcase good autism research.
Our first presentation will be by Dr Damian Milton. Damian works as a part-time lecturer at the University of Kent. He has been teaching in the further/ higher education sectors since 2000 in a range of subject areas relating to autism and learning disabilities.
Damian will be presenting a co-authored paper on ‘A critical reflection on the development of Participatory Autism Research Collective (PARC)’. Following a short presentation, there will be an opportunity for discussion.
- How can we as a research community build small steps toward participation, yet at the same time avoid tokenistic gestures?
- How do we help each other with the emotional labour of being an autistic researcher researching autism (taking into account how we are often written about)?
- How can we access funding and work with allies?
- What are the potential benefits of being an ‘outsider researcher’?
People will be able to take part in discussions verbally or using the chat function.
Emerald has provided the paper in free access until 31st December 2020:
