The Exeter Decolonising Network was set up in July 2019 by a collective of staff across disciplines who recognised the need to explore, share and nurture decolonial teaching and research methods across the University. It has grown to include community members across the South-West area interrogating decolonisation in their own practices. Our Network draws together a plurality of approaches to decolonial praxis in research, pedagogy, care and community engagement. We hold regular events, student-led initiatives, reflexive discussions and public engagement which we share on this page and on social media.
We have co-organised events with the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, the Centre for Medical History, the International Institute of Cultural Enquiry, and the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health.
We currently number around 150 members, and our activities are coordinated by a Steering Group.
The Steering Group members are:
- Abram Foley (English & Film)
