There has been increased attention to the issue of racism on campus and the lack of representation of people of colour and other groups in the curriculum. This issue is not just about adding a few extra texts to the curriculum, but about creating an environment where all students from all backgrounds feel they belong.
Staff and students across the faculty of Arts and Humanities are invited to this workshop to explore what a decolonised curriculum and faculty would look like; and to reflect on the culture, community and academic practices within your school and how to make the academic experience positive and identity-affirming for everyone.
Schools in this faculty are: AMA; HIS; IIH; LDC and PPL.
We're committed to making sure all Do Something Different events are as accessible as possible for all students.
This event has no accessibility issues.
Any attendees with individual concerns about their accessibility are advised to contact Union Opportunities (Union.Opportunities@uea.ac.uk) for additional support.
What is Do Something Different?
The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures!
There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon!
