Topic: Decolonizing Math and Sciences
Can math and science be decolonized? Let’s discuss some techniques for decolonizing disciplines where it doesn’t seem as easy to do so. Open sharing and discussion of ideas and best practices.
As a result of participating in this series, individuals will:
• recognize and question their own knowledge and assumptions around decolonization
• apply colleagues’ ideas on decolonization to their own teaching practice
• actively participate in the decolonization of academia generally and Queen’s specifically
Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to monthly brown bag lunches to discuss the implications of decolonization for teaching and learning. Facilitators from the CTL will guide discussion, but all participants will contribute to the direction of each meeting and the direction of the program as a whole.
