Decolonising the Curriculum at MHSES – a reflective discussion space for students and staff

What does ‘Decolonising the Curriculum’ mean for our courses and programmes at Moray House?

The Centre for Education for Racial Equality in Scotland (CERES) and the MHSES Race Equality Subgroup invite all those interested to learn more about this, and reflect on our own roles in this process, to our second reflective discussion space.

The next session will take place on Tuesday, 12 January 2021, from 11.00 – 12.00 am.

Attendees will be asked to read the following paper in advance of the session, and come prepared to discuss:

Barrantes-Montero, L. G. (2018). Phillipson’s linguistic imperialism revisited at the light of Latin American decoloniality approach. Revista Electrónica Educare, 22(1), 1-19. (Available here).

The event will be co-chaired by CERES Members Labake Fakunle and Yvonne Foley. It is open to all students and staff at MHSES.
