Autism

Autistic people face discrimination and prejudice in a society which expects us to understand and fit in with social rules that are not of our making. People with autism are also part of the disabled people's fightback. This section includes my work providing 'Autism in the workplace' training and information for trade union representatives, plus campaign news, and personal and political observations.

Informal Discussion on Autism and Marxism, Leeds

20/09/2016 - 19:00

In a pub somewhere near the Lovell Park Autism Hub. Meet outside the Hub at 7pm or text 07957-217639 to find out where we are! Janine will give a take about Marxism and Autism, then we'll chat about it. Can Marxism explain the social position and experiences of autistic people? Are there specific Marxist theories that are useful? Is capitalism both developed and disabling? What's class got to do with it?

Marxism and Autism: there is a spectrum haunting Europe

How can Marxism explain the autistic experience in modern capitalism? What is the political economy of the neurodiverse working class? How are autistic people exploited and oppressed?
