Dr Matemba will emphasise the need to think about decolonising the curriculum through the lens of an anticolonial framework and identify ways in which a decolonised curriculum in both school and teacher education can be understood and delivered.

Dr Matemba will explore the need to challenge generations of engrained thinking, normalised approaches and dominant narratives which perpetuate privilege for some, whilst selectively marginalising others.

Strategies and practical next steps for those working in Education will be offered, including focusing on stories of people from formerly colonised and enslaved parts of the world.

This promises to be a stimulating, thought-provoking lecture with time for Q&A and discussion.
