"Is there a gene for autism? Jennifer Singh, a sociologist of science, technology, and medicine at Georgia Tech, investigates this very question in her new book Multiple Autisms: Spectrums of Advocacy and Genomic Science. The book critically examines the practices, politics, and meanings of autism genetics from scientific, cultural, and social perspectives. Based on over 70 interviews with scientists, parents, and people living with autism, the book charts parent activism and their promotion of autism genetics research, the scientific optimism and subsequent failure of finding a gene for autism, and the utility of genetic information for the immediate lives of people living with autism. Singh will visit Charis to discuss her findings about the ever-expanding meanings of autism from those who study it and to those who live with autism everyday. This is a Charis Circle Urban Sustainability and Wellness event. The suggested donation is $5."
