Dr Allison Moore from Edge Hill HIGSS Department is proud to be Co-hosting a free one-day online conference, the ‘Participatory Autism Research Collective (PARC) Critical Autism Studies (CAS) Conference’ on Monday 21 November. Her co-host is PARC creator and Internationally recognised Dr Damian Milton from the University of Kent. This is the first time the full conference has been held outside of London.

The Participatory Autism Research Collective (PARC) was set up to bring autistic people, including scholars and activists, together with early career researchers and practitioners who work with autistic people. Dr Moore has built close links between our CAS Research Network, the MA Social Sciences (Critical Autism Studies) and members of PARC over a number of years. We share a vision to create a community for people who want to promote autistic involvement in autism research.

The conference has a wide range of notable speakers, many of whom are Autistic* themselves. It includes sessions from Edge Hill CAS Master’s student Wiktoria Luck discussing, ‘Problems faced by autistic women at work and solutions to them: results from Poland.’ Also speaking is Edge Hill CAS Visiting Lecturer Paul Davies who will be, ‘Discussing the reality of developing Trauma Informed Care for Autistic people.’ 

Attendees from all over the world have already signed up, but there are still some spaces available.

Running between 9am – 2.30pm.

The programme schedule is available online.

The Teams Link will be provided upon registration.

Please use the capital ‘A’ in this instance given it is talking about Identity. It is used in different ways, as per in Wiktoria’s presentation title. I appreciate it is a pain sometimes!
