Unsettling Knowledge: Decolonising and Globalising Research and Teaching

Drift 23, 113

Decolonisation has become a rallying cry in recent social movements. The topic is becoming pressing in the educational and cultural sectors. But what does it mean to decolonise education? Is it just another hashtag or does it point to more fundamental change? By taking a critical approach to the decolonisation and globalisation of education, the Decolonisation Group hopes to bring students and academics together to discuss what it means to ‘decolonise’ teaching and research and how we go about ‘unsettling knowledge’.

 

This series of seminars will provide a forum for students and staff to "unsettle" of History, Anthropology, International Relations, and Law. With high-profile academics leading these monthly seminars, it promises to be a thought-provoking programme.
