New Post at College Composition Weekly: Karen Kopelson in College English on Career Guides for ASD Adults

Kopelson analyzes workplace guides for “high-functioning” ASD individuals, arguing that the books construct such employees as examples of “capitalist wish-fulfillment” (560), both lauding the supposed deficits that make them ideal workers and advising them to “norm” themselves in order to “adapt” and “fit in” (563-64). Kopelson argues that the guidebooks employ implicit pedagogical and rhetorical theory and methods that highlight tensions within composition studies and between composition and disability studies. http://wp.me/p5NPq1-2K
