In Summer 2022, Dr Lizann Bonnar and the HaSS Faculty GEDI committee were awarded funding from the Resilient Learning Communities Fund for 2 undergraduate interns on decolonising the curriculum within HaSS. The interns are: Daniyaal Ali (School of Social Work & Social Policy) and Sara St George (School of Humanities), supervised by Dr Navan Govender (lecturer in applied language and literacy studies, School of Education). The interns developed two main objectives: 1) to produce a report or resource that would serve as a productive starting point for HaSS staff and students as they work toward decolonising their own practices and curriculums, and 2) to begin developing a student body survey that would enable the faculty to gain insight into HaSS students’ perspectives on decolonising the curriculum. Attached is the resource that the interns produced. We hope this will provide a springboard for staff and student learning and action across the faculty.
