Decolonising the humanities and social sciences

What does it mean to decolonise the humanities and social sciences?  What are practical strategies that we can use to do this work? And what relationship does this work have to the degree awarding or attainment gap?  This panel will address these and other questions.

The event is open to University of Westminster students and staff as well as members of the public.  Please book a ticket.  It will take place in room UG 04.  If you are unfamiliar with the building and have access requirements, please contact the event organiser Jennifer Fraser (j ! fraser | westminster ! ac ! uk) for further information.

Members of the panel are:
