Expression of Interest: Decolonising language at LSTM

As members of the Decolonising Education ​Working Group, we are looking to set up a small Working Group of colleagues ​and students from across the School to explore how we might approach the Decolonisation of our Communication(s) ​and use of language. 

There will be two aspects to this:

Involves Decolonising the language we use in the ​development and sharing of knowledge ​in research or education. How do our different experiences of reality influence the way we communicate knowledge in teaching, learning and research?
Looks at the language we use in communications as a School – how do we refer to global colleagues or non-Liverpool based colleagues and partners, what language can we use that reflects our global context in a way that is not UK-centric, and how can we standardise our approach in a way that reflects our global community?

If you are interested in being involved in these discussions, please contact Martha Chinouya and Sophie Black on decolonising@lstmed.ac.uk
