Practical Scholarship: Optimising Beneficial Research Collaborations Between Autistic Scholars, Professional Services Staff and ‘Typical Academics’ in UK Universities
Martin, N. (2020). Practical Scholarship: Optimising Beneficial Research Collaborations Between Autistic Scholars, Professional Services Staff and ‘Typical Academics’ in UK Universities. in: Chown, N. (ed.) Neurodiversity: A New Critical Paradigm Routledge.
The focus of this chapter is addressing the marginalisation of many autistic academics, and others without formal academic employment contracts, in UK universities. I consider blocks to fair participation in academic employment and propose strategies to circumvent barriers. These include: challenging narrow ideas about who should engage in research, emphasising the usefulness of insider perspective and collaborations, and prioritising inclusive practice. I discuss various structures to facilitate engaging in practical, collaborative scholarship. These include: the Participatory Autism Research Collective (PARC), Journal of Inclusive Practice in Further and Higher Education (JIPFHE) and National Association of Disability Practitioners (NADP).
