What is a Decolonial Curriculum?

Wednesday, November 28, 2018 -
11:00am to 6:00pm
Radcliffe Humanities
TORCH Seminar Room

Decolonising the curriculum must mean more than simply including diverse texts. As Dalia Gebrial, one of the editors of the new book, Decolonising the University (Pluto Press, 2018) has written, any student and academic-led decolonisation movement must not only ‘rigorously understand and define its terms, but locate the university as just one node in a network of spaces where this kind of struggle must be engaged with. To do this […] is to enter the university space as a transformative force.’

Invited speakers:
