Talks at The Smith: Sherlock, Darcy and friends revisited

About Talks at The Smith: Sherlock, Darcy and friends revisited

In recent decades in this country, there has been increasing education and activism relating to both autism and neurodiversity. The latter term reflects the understanding that human brains operate along a spectrum of different traits, rather than deviating from an unspoken norm. In a fascinating reappraisal, publishing and inclusion consultant Jo revisits characters from classic fiction and applies the lens of what we know now to their experiences and behaviours.

About Jo Ross-Barrett (they / them)

Jo is an experienced writer, editor and inclusion consultant. They gained a first class degree in English Language and Literature at the University of Edinburgh and a distinction in their MSc in Publishing at Edinburgh Napier. A queer autistic non-binary person, Jo guest-edited the first-ever disabled and neurodivergent writers’ edition of the sci-fi magazine Shoreline of Infinity. They have worked as an inclusion consultant and editor on hundreds of books, many by major publishers.

All lectures take place at the Smith, at Albert Place, Stirling, on Wednesdays at 7.30pm (doors open 7pm)
