Teaching and learning conference hears how course adapts to a changing society

Robin Dunford, course leader for Globalisation: History, Politics and Culture,  told a teaching conference how the course had adapted to reflect a changing society.

 

Robin contributed to a panel on decolonising the curriculum. The session looked at the challenges in changing University curriculum to ensure that issues of race and colonialism have the focus that they deserve.

The course, taught on the humanities programme, now includes reflections on how modern global society has been shaped by histories of colonialism. It also looks at diverse perspectives – from indigenous peoples, small-scale farmers in the global south, and others – on contemporary global challenges including climate change. This is just one example of work that has been done within the school of humanities to place at the foreground if its teaching voices that have been excluded and marginalised.
