The Times: University pledges to ‘decolonise’ degrees after listening to students

“A leading university is ‘decolonising’ its curriculums as part of a culture shift, its director revealed yesterday.
“Baroness Amos, the Labour life peer who runs the School of Oriental and African Studies (Soas) in London, said it had established a working group on decolonisation and was listening to the perspectives of students.
“Oxford University changed its history degree to include a compulsory examination on non-British and non-European history, and bodies including University College London have run campaigns called Why is my curriculum white? They criticised the domination of white ‘Eurocentric’ writers and thinkers in degree courses.”
