The event is organised by the Decolonising the Curriculum Working Group and the Doctoral Academy, with support from the Teaching & Learning Academy.
Where possible, the organisers want to make a distinction between decolonial approaches and diversifying resources. Whilst the promotion of diverse representation plays a key role in equitable teaching and research, this event will focus on how staff and students are seeking to move beyond the representation of diverse scholars to engage in decolonial praxis. The aim is to create a welcoming and collaborative space with opportunities within sessions, and at the end, for respectful and reflective discussion.
Any questions can be sent via email to the event organisers.
