Research exploring the causes of autism spectrum disorder has increased significantly in recent years. This talk develops the concept of the maternal body as environment to describe how studies focused on environmental risk factors are producing women’s bodies as sites of growing consequence for understanding childhood difference today. I argue that this science reflects new spatial and temporal dimensions of parental responsibility, and new ideas about the relationships between bodies and environments in the post-genomic era.
