Doing Academia Neurodivergently

24 June @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Doing Academia Neurodivergently, Neurodiversity Network launch event

Panelists: Paul Lodge (University of Oxford), Sarah Carr (King’s College London), Georgia Lin (University of Oxford)

The TORCH Neurodiversity Network will be launched on Thursday, 23rd of May with a panel discussion illustrating the wide-ranging nature of the projects that will fall under its umbrella. Three researchers who are members of the network will briefly introduce some of their recent work and the directions they expect to explore in the future. Sarah Carr will talk about her research on the challenges facing efforts at ‘transformative co-production’ in mental health policy and practice; Georgia Lin will speak to her feminist analysis of Aotearoa New Zealand’s mental health provisions and more recent article on women of colour in the academy; and Paul Lodge will present his ideas on the therapeutic possibilities of ‘Pyrrhonism’ for those with experience of manic consciousness.

Biographies:

Paul Lodge is Professor of Philosophy at Oxford University and a fellow of Mansfield College. His research is primarily centred on the work of G. W. Leibniz, but as an autistic person with a long-standing bipolar disorder diagnosis, he has recently started to organize conferences and write about m/Madness and n/Neurodiversity from a broadly philosophical perspective (for more details see: www.paullodge.com)

Sarah Carr is an independent research consultant and Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, where she is affiliated to the Service User Research Enterprise (SURE). Her work focuses on experiences of madness and distress, disability and mental health service use. She has a diagnosis of bipolar disorder and was recently diagnosed as autistic, prompting her to think more deeply about neurodiversity.

Georgia Lin is a DPhil candidate in Education at Brasenose College, Oxford. Her doctoral research explores the experiences of women of colour participating in student activism at Oxford. She was previously the Project Coordinator for Neurodiversity at Oxford.
