Autism and Intersectionality Webinar Series

ASfAR Institute 2020:

Intersectionality is a framework for understanding how aspects of the identity of a person or group of people may combine to create discrimination, disadvantage or prejudice. This webinar series will explore the research and knowledge around autism and its intersection with personal, social and cultural systems or factors.

This webinar series takes place via Zoom on Wednesdays across August and September 2020.

The live sessions of the ASfAR 2020 Institute are free for ASfAR members to attend but preregistration is required. Where possible, sessions will be recorded and available following the series to current ASfAR Members as a benefit of society membership.

The INSAR Board is committed to providing some online content planned for the INSAR 2020 Annual Meeting to aid in advancement of quality autism research.

We recognize the need for students, early career researchers and others to not only share their work but to also cite a presentation or publication.  With these goals in mind, we are proceeding with plans to publish an Abstract Book online (PDF file), providing all presenters (poster, oral and panel) with an opportunity to submit an ePoster and hosting an online searchable portal for all submitted content.

In addition, INSAR will be hosting one or more Keynote webinar talks on June 3, 2020. More details to come soon – please check the INSAR website!
