Autism Journal Club

Diversity, Gender, Intersectionality, and Feminism - Spectrum women: Walking to the Beat of Autism

This week's Journal Club meeting will be led by Dr. Catriona A Stewart from Scottish Autism who is also Founder and Chair of SWAN: Scottish Women’s Autism Network. She will lead a discussion centered around the chaptered she authored titled: Diversity, Gender, Intersectionality, and Feminism in the newly published book: Spectrum women: Walking to the Beat of Autism. The topic is of particular interest to the autistic community and research if we want to be able to move forward in both research and diagnosis. Thus one of the questions it would be considered at this journal club meeting would be: ‘Can lived experience narrative and autoethnographic accounts help inform research directions?’
