Decolonising the curriculum: webinar recording now available

23 April 2021

A recording of our discussion on decolonising the curriculum across the Eastern Arc universities is now available.

The sound for the host, our Director Phil Ward, was poor, so we’ve recorded a new introduction, but the rest of the discussion is unchanged.

Thank you to all the speakers who took part. They are:

  • From UEA: Dr Claire Hynes and Aimee Ibarra Hempel
  • From Essex: Dr Hannah Gibson and Samira Diebire
  • From Kent: Dr Barbara Adewumi and Patrice Mighton.

In addition, the short podcast series on decolonising the curriculum is available.

Next Steps

Since the recording, the speakers have been discussing how they can continue and amplify their work, to share, to learn and thereby raise the profile and create a critical mass to continue to push for change.

As part of this, we are planning to develop a list (similar to our ‘communities of common interest’) of those at the Eastern Arc universities with an interest in the wider issues of racism and discrimination, whether that be through your research, your teaching and learning, or through your personal or professional experience. If you’d like to be included in the list, contact us with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your university and department affiliation, as appropriate
  • Your interest or experience in the area
  • Your homepage (if appropriate)
  • Your email.

In the meantime, The Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE) is  developing a Decolonisation Network. Do register if you want to be part of this.
