520    "The reasons behind the increase in autism diagnoses have 
       become hotly contested in the media as well as within the 
       medical, scholarly, and autistic communities. Jordynn Jack
       suggests the proliferating number of discussions point to 
       autism as a rhetorical phenomenon that engenders attempts 
       to persuade through arguments, appeals to emotions, and 
       representational strategies. In Autism and Gender: From 
       Refrigerator Mothers to Computer Geeks, Jack focuses on 
       the ways gender influences popular discussion and 
       understanding of autism's causes and effects. She 
       identifies gendered theories like the "refrigerator 
       mother" theory, for example, which blames emotionally 
       distant mothers for autism, and the "extreme male brain" 
       theory, which links autism to the modes of systematic 
       thinking found in male computer geeks. Jack's analysis 
       reveals how people employ such highly gendered theories to
       craft rhetorical narratives around stock characters--fix-
       it dads, heroic mother warriors rescuing children from 
       autism--that advocate for ends beyond the story itself 
       while also allowing the storyteller to gain authority, 
       understand the disorder, and take part in debates. Autism 
       and Gender reveals the ways we build narratives around 
       controversial topics while offering new insights into the 
       ways rhetorical inquiry can and does contribute to 
       conversations about gender and disability"--|cProvided by

520    "The CDC estimates that 1 in 110 children in the US have 
       an autism spectrum disorder, and over the last decade the 
       cause of autism has become a highly contested topic in the
       media as well within medical, scholarly, and autistic 
       communities. Speculation about why and how a growing 
       number of people, especially boys, have been diagnosed 
       with autism spectrum disorders has ranged widely, from 
       parenting practices and vaccines to environmental and 
       genetic factors. Jordynn Jack suggests that as these 
       discourses have proliferated, autism has become a 
       "rhetorical phenomenon" in that it prompts attempts at 
       persuasion through arguments, appeals to emotions, and 
       various representational strategies in vigorous and 
       sometimes vitriolic debates. In this study, Jack takes up 
       the rhetorical dimensions of autism, especially how 
       popular and scientific experts have argued for theories 
       about the etiology of autism spectrum disorders. In 
       particular, Jack focuses on the ways in which assumptions 
       about gender inform popular understandings of the causes 
       and effects of autism. Two well-known gendered theories 
       that have been associated with autism include the 
       "refrigerator mother" theory of the 1950s, which purported
       that cold, emotionless mothers caused autism, and the 
       Extreme Male Brain theory, which suggests that autism is a
       disorder of highly systematic thinking associated with 
       male geeks. Theories such as these and others provide 
       opportunities to examine how gendered assumptions fill in 
       gaps in knowledge and authority about autism. More broadly,
       this analysis offers new insights on how rhetorical 
       inquiry can contribute to larger conversations about 
       gender and disability"--|cProvided by publisher
