Here is a fantastic new article from Wolfson College, with our ThinkLab Visiting Scholar, Professor Inger Mewburn, that is a fantastic read: “‘The Thesis Whisperer’ on neurodiversity in academia, delivering workshops at Wolfson, and a few months of “fruitful hanging out” in Cambridge.”
We are extremely happy to have Inger with us in Cambridge during these couple of months (more than a few of us in The ThinkLab have been longtime followers of The Thesis Whisperer blog). As some of our followers will note, neurodiversity has become a major focus in some of our ThinkLab projects and collaborations.
Especially of interest from the Wolfson College article is this part:
“Following the publication of Be Visible or Vanish, Inger is now researching neurodiversity and PhD study – a focus that inspired her link up with the ThinkLab, following their collaboration with the BBC.
“I think a lot of academics sit somewhere on various spectrums. And I think it’s something we just never talk about.”
“I’ve just started a literature review, and it seems that nobody’s done anything around PhD study and neurodiversity, which is extraordinary considering potentially how many people are or have been doing a PhD who identify as autistic, ADHD, and so on.”
