Panel event to investigate questions surrounding decolonising the curriculum.

About this Event

As debates surrounding decolonising the curriculum have raged in the media over the last couple of years, student interest in these campaigns across the Joint Faculties is extremely high. There have been local departmental initiatives speaking to this agenda, and for some people in the Joint Faculties, this is an area they have been working in for years – long before the term was popularised/jargonised in the media. That said, there is still uncertainty amongst many (staff and students) about what it means exactly, why, and when it is important, and how it can be achieved.

This panel event provides an opportunity to investigate these questions with people who have been involved in and/or vocal about decolonised curricula in Higher Education over the last few years.

Join us as we come together and discuss the importance of finding new ways of seeing the canon. The event will be followed by a drinks reception at 18:45.
