This discussion will focus on thinking about new paradigms in autism and neurodiversity. We will read the article titled “Throw Away the Master’s Tools: Liberating Ourselves From the Pathology Paradigm,” by Nick Walker (from Loud Hands: Autistic People, Speaking [2012]) and the introduction to Autistic Disturbances (2018) by Julia Miele Rodas. If time permits, the discussion will also include Mad at School: Rhetorics of Disability and Academic Life (2011) by Margaret Price, which tackles mental illness/health, college students/faculty, psychology, mentally disabled persons, personal narratives, communication, and stereotypes.

Sponsored by the IHC’s Disability Studies Initiative Research Focus Group
