Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution with ISSN or ISBN

Abstract

A renewed call to decolonise the university curriculum has emerged since the South African student protests of 2015. This call is part of a revived cultural shift in thinking about education and what should form the canon of curriculum content, and has been amplified further here in the UK by the ‘Rhodes must fall’ campaign. However, fresh approaches and opportunities for advancing practice in teaching and learning with an aim to diversify the university curriculum for teaching and learning is not without challenge, and some have raised voices of caution. Our paper shall reflect on the meaning of decolonising the curriculum, and on attempts to decolonise the curriculum at both institutional and subject-specific level
