In 2015, a group of interdisciplinary scholars gathered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for an intellectual experiment: a workshop that joined approaches from psychological anthropology to the South American tradition of Collectuve Health in order to consider autism within social, historical, and political settings. This book is the product of that event, and of the ongoing conversation that emerged from it. Bringing together comparative histories of autism policy in Brazil, Italy and the United States with ethnographic explorations of the lived worlds of people affected by autism as they work, play, and fight for contested rights, this volume explores autism at the nexus of self, subjectivity, and society in a globalized world--back cover.
