Decolonization is Not a Metaphor: Pedagogy & Praxis

In recent decades calls to decolonize curriculums, classrooms and minds grow more and more urgent. In this panel discussion, we take this conversation further—what does the work of decolonization actually require of us as instructors, scholars and leaders? What would happen if we saw higher education within the context of a long legacy of settler colonialism? And why has this language been so easy to co-opt? Join us in the second installment of the Anti-Racism Toolkit programming series, “Transforming Knowledge to Action.”
