“Autism: Disability or Neurodiversity?” Chicago Conversations Dec. 3rd, 2015

December 03, 2015 at The Seminary Co-op Bookstores in Chicago.

Beginning this fall the Seminary Coop Bookstore will host a series of monthly conversations about compelling contemporary issues that are informed by scholarship that bears on those issues. Contributing authors introduce the discussions, leaving most of the time for dialogue among those whom we would prefer to call “participants” rather than members of an “audience.” Thus the goal is to help create what Rosa Eberly calls a “literary public sphere,” in which private consumers of books and the issues they address are encouraged to become public communicators about them

All events start at 6 pm. at the Seminary Co-op Bookstore, 5751 S. Woodlawn Ave., and will be hosted by social and political theorist Isaac Balbus, Emeritus Professor of Political Science, University of Illinois at Chicago.
Thursday December 3.AutismDisability or Neurodiversity?” introduced by Lennard Davis, Department of English and School of Applied Health Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, author of Enforcing Normalcy and The End of Normal.
