For foundation and in-depth contributions we are –in particular- hoping to receive proposals in the field of critical autism studies: contributions from a philosophical, sociological, cultural or disability-studies point of view on autism.

In particular we are hoping to receive proposals on subjects like:

-Advocacy and self-advocacy

-Participating in scientific research

-Experiential knowledge

-Recovery and empowerment

-Peer work and peer work projects


-Citizenship, minority grouping

-Image and representation of autism

-The field of (critical) Autism Studies

Looking for inspiration?
