Decolonising the curriculum resources

This is by no means an exhaustive or representative list but gives an indication of what is available. If there are key resources you would like to add please email with your suggestion.

Find Diversity and Inclusion ebooks in the LJMU Library

The Library have enabled access to a collection of ebook titles via the Proquest platform that unearth award-winning content written and published by more voices; regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, physical ability or religious belief.

These titles are often historically difficult to find but a selection can be retrieved via our Every Voice: Diversity, Equality and Inclusivity Collection for you to add to your teaching and learning at LJMU. Find titles published in the past 7 years, running across interdisciplinary themes from authors around the world. Once you have found a title you will be able to download for off-line reading or stay online and read on a mobile device.

Also note the existing Black Lives Matters Reading Collection which is available through the Library and mainly contains print copies available to loan.

It contains selected generic introductory resources and details of activities in Schools across the university to facilitate individual reflective practice, promote the exchange of ideas and provide a supportive network.
