PARC Critical Autism Studies – Autumn Workshop 19th October 2021


The Participatory Autism Research Collective, in partnership with the Critical Autism and Disabilities Studies Research Group at LSBU, are pleased to present this interactive session exploring a range of issues with guest speakers.

This follows on from the success of our previous conferences, both in person & virtual, and provide an opportunity to build on shared knowledge & experience through learning, open discussion & networking.

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, fascinating and groundbreaking research, one annual event was simply not enough. Our confirmed speakers can be found below and we look forward to introducing more of these events in the future…
