Creating an Inclusive Reading List

Decolonising the Curriculum

One of the areas of focus for Hallam’s work around the degree awarding gap is for us to think about what strategies could be put in place – with care and involving students – to decolonise the curriculum.

Decolonising the curriculum requires us to consider, and then address, how the values, norms, thinking, beliefs and practices that frame the curriculum perpetuate white, westernised hegemony and position anything non-European and not white as inferior.

You can read more about Decolonising the Curriculum at Sheffield Hallam here.

When creating your Reading List Online, take time to consider the following: 

  • Range of authorship - have you a representative range from various backgrounds or are your authors predominantly western, male and white?
  • Is the female voice heard?
  • Annotating the references, providing context and highlighting any aspects that are particularly relevant or interesting.
