Neurodiversity Network


nerodiversity logo

This is a new network grounded in affirmation of neurodivergent spaces, which seeks to nurture and promote work-in-progress on neurodivergence and intersectionality. In being neurodivergence-affirming and centring the knowledge and skills of neurodivergent people, our approach is founded on what Merri Lisa Johnson and Robert McRuer call ‘cripistemologies’: the knowledge and authority that disabled people have to describe their own lives and experiences precisely because we are disabled. We aim to drive forward the field of neurodiversity studies by enabling interdisciplinary conversations about neurodivergence in the humanities in an inclusive and accessible setting. We run two events a term, providing a space for ECRs, established researchers and neurodiversity activists and creatives to collaborate and share ideas.
