From the Rhodes Must Fall movement in South Africa and Oxford to the decolonisation work being done at the Graduate Institute, Geneva, efforts to decolonise the university have continued to grow across university campuses worldwide. However, what does decolonising the university mean, and how does this differ from diversity and inclusion projects?

Black Conversations have partnered with the Gender Centre to host Professor Kehinde Andrews lecture on "Decolonising the curriculum and Racism in Academia".

After his talk, the event will be moderated by Nicole Bourbonnais, and the discussion led by Gopalan Balachandran and Graziella Moraes Dias da Silva.
