Decolonising Higher Education

Decolonising Higher Education

What’s in it for us? What do we have to lose?

Although decolonising has a very long history, it has certainly risen in public consciousness over the past few years. Depending on what you read, listen to, or watch – and who you are – it either represents a call for long overdue reckonings or a threat to modern society as we know it. This session opens up a discussion around what decolonising means, how it relates to universities, and what the implications are for staff and students.

Presenters: Dr Richard Budd (Educational Research) and Jordan Blanchard-Lafayette (PhD student in LEC)
