This summer, Clatsop Community Colleges English instructor Julie Brown offers Autism in Literature (ENG 263), an online, three-credit course in which students read and study literary works written by people on the autism spectrum.
Students will examine a variety of works including Temple Grandins Emergence, fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen, Elijahs Cup and other classic works.
Browns book Writers on the Spectrum: How Autism and Aspergers Syndrome have Influenced Literary Writing was a groundbreaking analysis of the ways that autistic people communicate in writing. She has lectured about her findings in Rome, Istanbul, Paris, and around the U.S.
Registration is now open for summer classes. Seating is limited.
