After a successful first seminar on November 2014, the second seminar in the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded seminar series, “Innovative technologies for autism – critical reflections on digital bubbles”, will be taking place on Monday, March 25th, 2015 at the University of Sussex. This seminar will focus on the developmental bubble, considering whether developmental trajectories in autism are delayed, or simply different. Confirmed speakers include: Richard Brown and Mark Bushby, Autism Sussex Antonia Hamilton, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL Ouriel Grynszpan, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris Vasu Reddy, Department of Psychology, University of Portsmouth.
We aim to encourage lively discussions around questions such as: What can we bring from an understanding of developmental challenges at different stages of life to understanding what effective use of technology at one stage can bring to other stages?; How can early social development in typical and atypical contexts help us understand more about how social interaction is fostered, and how technology might support, augment or supplant it?
Registration for the seminar is now open.
Attendance is free, however, spaces are limited. Please click here to register.
The Digital Bubbles series is being organized by Sarah Parsons (University of Southampton), Nicola Yuill and Judith Good (University of Sussex), and Mark Brosnan (University of Bath).
