Seminar Series- 2020-21
DeCol is launching their Decolonising the Curriculum: Teaching and Research Seminar Series 2020/21 and we want to learn from you!
This seminar series, open to all staff and students, will take place every other Friday beginning on the 4th of November in the Group’s Team and aims to address the ways in which we can decolonise the curriculum by working in partnership with our students, building on the success of last year’s grassroots work in the School (https://blogs.brighton.ac.uk/decolonisingatfalmer/why-were-here/).
We invite contributions from academic and professional service staff with teaching, research and working interests in the area of decolonising the curriculum, as well as postgraduate and undergraduate students across the School. We welcome practice- and research-based contributions that critically address, but are not limited to, the key 6 issues identified by students in the University’s recent report: ‘a Eurocentric curriculum and tokenistic attempts at diversity, lack of diversity in reading lists and resources, induction processes, social and networking opportunities, cultural awareness and careers/employability’ (BAME Student Experience Report, Bisel, MacDonnell, Waghorne 2020). We welcome different presentation formats such as academic papers, poster presentations, research/work-in-progress.
On behalf of DeCol,
