Disability Studies Reading Group, Sheffield, November 17th

After the success of the first Disability Studies Reading group 2016/17 at Sheffield Hallam University, I am happy to announce that meeting two will be taking place on November the 17th.

The informal discussion will be at Charles Street Building, Sheffield Hallam University, City Campus, Howard Street, Sheffield S1 1WB in room12.4.03 at 12pm.

The article to be discussed is:

Macleod, A., Lewis, A., Robertson, C. (2013) Why Should I Be Like Bloody Rain Man?! Navigating the Autistic Identity, British Journal of Special Education, 40(1), 41-49.

The following questions have been proposed to be thinking about, whilst you read:

  1. What is the importance of first-hand accounts?
  2. What could a constructive ‘autism identity’ look like?
  3. What are the positives and negatives of a diagnosis? A label? A group identity?

Please contact me at srhannam@my.shu.ac.uk for further information, access to the article, or if you have any questions about accessibility. If you can’t make this month’s session but you are interested in future sessions and want to be added to the email list, please also drop me a line!

Hope to see you soon,

Stephanie Hannam-Swain
