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
-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?
