ADHD Women: Resisting a Neuronormative World

Centre for Equality, Justice and Social Change, Zoom

14:00 - 15:30

You are invited to the Centre for Equality, Justice and Social Change's Research and Knowledge Exchange event on 2 February 2022, 2-3.30pm, which will take place over Zoom. In this event, Dr Dyi Huijg will be in conversation with Prof Leah Bassel about her work-in-progress, and take questions from the audience.

Dyi's Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship's project is entitled 'ADHD Women: Resisting a Neuronormative World'. Next to an analysis of ADHD knowledge production, the major component of the project consists of online fieldwork in England (starting January 2022). Through this, Dyi seeks to intersectionally explore – specifically multiply marginalised – ADHD women's experiences with, perspectives on, resistance to anti-ADHD inequalities and injustices, and how a world without these inequalities and injustices can be imagined.

In this conversation, Dyi will offer an overview of her project, discuss the current knowledge framework of biomedical and denialist approaches to ADHD knowledge and the need for this project, outline fieldwork design and the obstacles that the pandemic brought to this, and offer some initial thoughts on anti-ADHD inequalities and injustices.
