Seminar series: decolonising the science curriculum

This is a virtual seminar series organised by the School of Biological & Environmental Sciences and the LJMU Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) team to encourage discourse on decolonising the curriculum in the sciences.

The series of six seminars runs every Wednesday from 3 February – 10 March 2021.

The series begins with a talk examining why we need to consider decolonising the curriculum in science education, followed by subject-specific talks covering bioprospecting, the history of evolutionary biology, decolonising DNA and decolonising zoology. The series is wrapped up with a talk on decolonising pedagogy.

Each one hour seminar will start with a short 20 minute talk allowing plenty of time for Q&A and discussion in the remainder of the hour.
