Following on from the conferences on Critical Autism Studies (CAS) that were held at LSBU in 2017-19 and our virtual conferences held earlier this year, the Participatory Autism Research Collective, in partnership with the Critical Autism and Disabilities Studies Research Group at LSBU, return with a winter conference with another fantastic programme!

We aim to provide an environment for autistic researchers to present their work relating to critical autism studies and with so many colleagues conducting a wealth of vital and insightful research, one annual event was simply not enough.
