The latest Decolonising DMU event in the Kimberlin reading and discussion series will be taking place on Monday 19 April from noon-1pm. The discussion will focus on a number of academic sources focusing on topics such as critical race theory, and 'the trials, tribulations, dreams and joys of young Black boys in twenty-first century Peckham.' Students are invited to read and watch the below sources prior to the event.
Decolonising DMU is the university’s initiative, which encourages staff and students to examine the everyday norms of university life to identify and eliminate systems, structures and behaviours that create disadvantage for ethnic minorities.
Launched in November 2019, it focuses on decolonising the university as a whole rather than the curriculum alone, to celebrate the rich diversity of DMU.
Prior to the event, please read and consider the following in terms of your practice, our service and the student experience:
The continued relevance of “Teaching to transgress education as the practice as freedom” - pages 21-26
Increasing the depth of field: critical race theory and photovoice as counter storytelling praxis - pages 648-674.
You are also invited to watch the following:
Caleb Femi reads from The Six
Coconut Oil, Sofar
You will get the opportunity to share your opinions and insights as you examine the everyday norms of university life that may create a disadvantage for ethnic minorities. Come along ready to share your thoughts with other students and staff at the university.
To find out more, join the discussion and book your place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. A link to join the event will be sent to you, no later than two working days before.
