CFP: Autism and Representation Colloquium (UK) (11/1/05; 2/24/06)

Autism and Representation Friday 24th Feb 2006

A colloquium hosted by the Association for Research in Popular Fictions at Liverpool John Moores University



This colloquium seeks to consolidate, encourage & advance the growing body of cultural analysis concerned with cognitive disabilities, especially autism.


The rising rate of diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorders coupled with the popularisation of neurological research (not to mention the popularity of a certain well known novel) has made autism the disorder 'de rigueur' for the beginning of the 21st century.


This colloquium aims to map out the discursive challenges, limits, dangers and potentialities of this cultural phenomenon.
