This is the website of the Intersectional Neurodiversity Reading Group and/or the Intersectional Disability Reading Group. The reading groups are intended for academics, students, and activists and community members who are interested in reading and discussing intersectional academic texts on neurodiversity and/or disability from the Social Sciences and beyond. Both groups are neurodivergent-led and disabled-led, and unfunded. More info how to sign up here.
May -- Dec 2022: the Intersectional Neurodiversity RG takes place on the 1st & 3rd Friday of the month and focusses on ADHD only. There will be no Disability RG in this period.
We also organise, as and when, spin-off events, such as the webinars 'Feminist Perspectives on Neurodiversity and Neuronormativity' and 'Intersectional Approaches to Disability and Race'. Find the events' presentations and blog posts here.
All events organised by the reading groups follow, where applicable, the same ground rules and facilitation, communication and access guidelines. Attendance assumes agreement. Although available to the public, they are private initiatives.
