Imagining and building the representative, safe and inclusive classrooms of tomorrow!
We will be discussing not only the work currently being done to liberate our curriculum from the constraints of a white, cis-heteropatriarchical lens, but also discussing pedagogy and sharing best practice of how to make teaching more inclusive and productive. Decolonisation is not just about what we’re learning — how we’re learning, and the culture of the institution, matters too.
[SCROLL TO BOTTOM TO SEE OUR CALL FOR PAPERS]
Scholar-activism is our joint responsibility in the academy, and everyone has a role to play in this movement. We continue to champion staff-student collaboration in the decolonisation effort, and so extend invitations to scholars at all stages in their academic career, and to all of our comrades working towards the same goal of a less pale, male and stale university.
