The Curve Lecture Theatre (Hunter Wing, Level 0) ,
We all recognise the need to decolonise our curricula. We have begun this process by looking at gaps in our teaching as well as in the representation of St George’s history, trying to avoid stereotypes and celebrating the contribution of heroes who have not always been recognised. We also need to recognise our contribution to the histories of people who have been abused and oppressed.
At this session, students will present the research they have completed as part of the Black History Month Scholars scheme examining the history of St George’s as well as the history of healthcare more broadly. Ideas on using the St George’s Archives for further research will also be presented.
This will be followed by a discussion about how challenging histories can be embedded into curricula.
We hope this will be a chance for students and staff to share ideas.
There will be refreshments afterwards and a collection for the Pakistan Flood Relief fund.
No need to book – just turn up!
