Autism as an invisible disability: What you see is NOT everything

Saturday, July 29, 2023 - 14:00 to 15:15
Seminar room, Seaside House
Valtameri Autism as an invisible disability: What you see is NOT everything

A lack of societal understanding and acceptance of autism is a serious issue that is associated with loneliness and mistreatments of autistic people in criminal justice system or employment. Autism is not a disorder or impairment that needs to be treated or cured. What needs to be changed is the societal understanding of autism.

In this talk, from the societal model and neurodiversity paradigm, I will highlight lived experiences of autistic people including my own and latest research and cover topics such as sociality, loneliness, and mental health in autism. There will be a Q&A session at the end.

Speaker:

Dr Kana Grace

Kana is an English-Japanese bilingual psychologist specializing in Autism. She is an Honorary Research Fellow at the Center for Research in Autism and Education (CRAE) at University College London where she completed her PhD, and a research collaborator at Autism Spectrum Australia. She has been featured in major media such as BBC, Scientist, and Spectrum. Kana is autistic and an ADHDer, and is passionate about advocacy for autism and neurodiversity.

自閉症という見えない障がい:見えるものが全てではない

自閉症に対する社会の理解欠如は、孤独や刑事司法制度・雇用における当事者の不当な扱いに繋がる深刻な問題です。自閉症は「病気」ではなく、自閉症者を「治す」・「変える」必要はありません。変えていくべきなのは社会の自閉症に対する理解です。

この講義では、障害の社会的モデル・ニューロダイバーシティの目線から、講師自身を含めた当事者の経験と最新の研究に焦点を当て、自閉症における社会性・孤独・メンタルヘルスなどのトピックについて革新的な情報をお話しします。質疑応答の時間もあります。

講師:

Dr Kana Grace (カナ・グレイス博士)

カナは、自閉症専門の英日バイリンガル心理学者です。現在、博士号を取得したユニバーシティカレッジロンドンの自閉症研究所の名誉研究員・オーストラリアの自閉症チャリティー団体Autism Spectrum Australiaの共同研究者です。BBC, Scientist, Spectrum など国外の主要なメディアでも注目される自閉症研究者・活躍家です。カナは、自閉症・ADHD当事者で自閉症・ニューロダイバーシティの 擁 護活動に熱意を持っています。

Integrability, Deformations and Chaos

Tuesday, July 25, 2023 - 10:00 to Thursday, July 27, 2023 - 17:00
OIST Seaside House, OIST Lab 4

In the last few decades, the notion of Integrable systems and Chaos, both classical and quantum, have seen immense developments. Fuelled by a flurry of scientific inter-community dialogues, these ideas have turned out to be universally useful in a wide spectrum of theoretical studies, from worldsheet string sigma models, to black holes and holography, and further into real experimental systems. Numerous interesting connections between these seemingly disparate research areas are developing, promising to shed light on important open questions. We hope to further fuel these dialogues by inviting people from different fields using state-of-the-art tools to explore these exciting ideas.
