Welcome to Week 4

In this video Dr Marie-Annick Gournet and Professor Madhu Krishnan welcome learners to this week on decolonising the arts and humanities.

In this video, lead educators Dr Marie-Annick Gournet and Professor Madhu Krishnan introduce you to Week 4.

This week, we turn our attention to the arts and humanities. You will hear from a range of academics working in English literature, cultural studies, history, modern languages and philosophy, who each explain their own approach to decolonisation and pedagogy. We’ll learn about:

  • community-based approaches to teaching and learning
  • the way in which knowledge is produced
  • how archives impact how and what we know
  • the relationship between language and power.

At the end of the week we’ll introduce some practical tips and tools for putting your learning from this course into practice.
