Description

Using ethnographic methods, I analyze experiences and narratives of autistic transgender people in the United States juxtaposed with medical interpretations of autistic gender non-conformity. I explore relations between gender, disability, embodiment, and autonomy as crystalized in the experiences of transgender autistic individuals and their resistances to medical narratives of pathology.
