Friday 3 July, 2 - 5pm on Zoom

This year, our annual research conference will be a week long virtual research festival. We are dedicating an afternoon to discuss the topic of interdisciplinary approaches to autism and neurodiversity.

We are inviting academics, researchers and professionals with a particular interest related to the Medical Humanities to deliver a 15 minute talk to share their research around autism and neurodiversity.

We are looking for abstracts that fit into one of the following two topics:

"Pre 1940, what can history tell us about autism and neurodiversity today"


"Outside of the lab, taking an interdisciplinary approach to understanding autism and neurodiversity"

If your abstract does not fit into the above topics but you think it is still relevant please do submit it anyway!

We are asking for a short (250 word max) abstract, as well as a few details about you and your background for your submission.

Deadline to submit is 10 June, and you will be contacted by the 15th June if you are successful or not.

You can find out more about our virtual Research Festival here and watch recordings of last year's Discover Conference here.

If you have any questions about this session and/or the submission process, please email Bethan:
