Decolonising the Curriculum: The Podcast Series - Dr Gwenetta D. Curry in conversation with Prof. Rowena Arshad
From Joseph Arton on June 9th, 2021
Welcome to this podcast series produced by The Race Equality and Anti-Racist Sub-Committee (REAR) at the University of Edinburgh in collaboration with Teaching Matters where we hear from different academics at the University about what Decolonising the Curriculum means for them and how they have put this into practice in their learning and teaching or research. They also share some readings they have found useful.
The hope is that the podcasts will provide ideas, stimulate thinking and dialogues as well as build a network of academics in The University of Edinburgh who are interested and engaged in offering an anti-racist and inclusive curriculum.
If you are interested in contributing a podcast to this series, please get in touch with Emily Sena (email@example.com) or Johanna Holtan (firstname.lastname@example.org), co-convenors of the Race Equality and Anti-Racist Sub-Committee.
In this episode, Professor Emerita Rowena Arshad, Chair in Multicultural and Anti-Racist Education talks to Dr Gwenetta D. Curry a Lecturer of Race, Ethnicity, and Health in the Usher Institute at The University of Edinburgh
