PARC Critical Autism Studies – Winter Workshop 2021, 7th December 4.30-7pm (GMT)


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 related to educational contexts with guest speakers.

This follows on from the success of our previous conferences, both in person & virtual, and provides 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 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…

This set of workshops will focus on the theme of education.

  1. Hi! I’m one of the people listed here to present but I’ve recently changed my job, and therefore my email address. I’m not sure, but I think posting here will give you access to my new email. If not, could you please reply and let me know where to email so that I can access joining details? (Or if should I just register to attend, I will do that?).
