The DeCol Collective is delighted to host a virtual book launch of This is the Canon: Decolonise Your Bookshelf in 50 Books (Quercus, 2021). Professor Joan Anim-Addo (Goldsmiths), Dr Deirdre Osborne (Goldsmiths) and Kadija Sesay (Brighton) have curated a decolonised reading list that celebrates the wide and diverse experiences of people from around the world. The book disrupts the all-too-often white-dominated ‘required reading’ collections that have become the accepted norm and highlights powerful voices and cultural perspectives that demand a place on our shelves and on our curriculum. A panel discussion was chaired by Dr Vedrana Velickovic and Q&A with our guest speakers.
