Decolonising Education - A Conversation

Campbell, F. K. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

UOD Black History Month
While decolonising the curriculum can mean different things, it includes a fundamental reconsideration of what the subjects are being taught, how its taught and who teaches it. But the campaign for decolonising the curriculum still faces scepticism and resistance.
Professor Fiona Kumari Campbell and Dr Fernando Lannes Fernandes will examine why oppressed indigenous voices and experiences need to be a central aspect of the curriculum and why this is important to today’s learners. Both Professor Kumari Campbell and Dr Fernando Lannes Fernandes are ‘biracial’ academics working within the School of Education and Social Work.
