Imagining and building the representative, safe and inclusive classrooms of tomorrow!
We discussed not only the work currently being done to liberate our curriculum from the constraints of a white, cis-heteropatriarchical lens, but also pedagogy and shared best practice of how to make teaching more inclusive and productive. Decolonisation in academia is not just about what we’re learning — how we’re learning, and the culture of the institution, matters too.
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 extended 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.
This event took place in April 2021
Aims of the event:
- To give insight into the work Project Myopia is currently doing.
- To share best practice between different decolonisation movements.
- To foster networking between similar groups, in the hopes of creating a UK-wide decolonisation network.
- To create lasting connections between movements so successful policies can be implemented between institutions.
