PARC Critical Autism Studies – Autumn Conference 18th October 2021


Following on from the conferences on Critical Autism Studies (CAS) that were held at LSBU in 2017-19 and our first virtual annual conference in the summer, the Participatory Autism Research Collective, in partnership with the Critical Autism and Disabilities Studies Research Group at LSBU, return with our second event of the year due to popular demand!

We aim to provide an environment for autistic researchers to present their work relating to critical autism studies and with so many colleagues conducting a wealth of vital and insightful research, one annual event was simply not enough.
