'Decolonising Your Curriculum: An Immersive Workshop' held at De Montfort University and Leicester Castle Business School with Carl Jones
Deep insights were raised into Decolonising Your Curriculum: An Immersive Workshop held at De Montfort University and Leicester Castle Business School where I discussed ‘Decolonization within Marketing’ . Other speakers included the esteemed Dr Melanie Crofts and Momodou Sallah . Thank you to Amelia Roberts and the Academy of Marketing and the Marketing Trust. Link to event .
With the support of the Academy of Marketing, and the Marketing Trust, this free, one-day workshop, hosted at Leicester Castle Business School, De Montfort University, welcomes early career researchers and PhD students who have a strong interest in curriculum decolonisation
You will have ample opportunities to discuss, understand, and challenge, some of the core issues that will continue to impact the ways that we work within academy and beyond. The workshop will embed a practical activity that will run as a thread across all of the speakers’ segments, which will provoke thought and discussion.
Participants will learn to rethink a current curriculum by learning how to dismantle and rebuild pedagogic content. The workshop will encourage participants to create an inclusive curriculum and reflect on choice of teaching materials, incorporating the lived experiences of those in the classroom setting, in addition to strategies for enhancing learning and facilitates effective co-creation practices.
Through the incorporation of global viewpoints, and a push for a wider understanding of the curriculum being taught, participants will have gained practical ideas that can be directly applied to their own modules.
ECRs and PhD students who are relatively new to teaching and have limited experience of curriculum design. The workshop will be open to participants from any institution. A small budget will be put aside to help subsidise travel where required. There will be an expectation that participants bring their own laptops.
Activities planned for participants:
A teaching curriculum will be sent to all participants as part of the pre-workshop preparation. This preparation work will allow participants to think about initial ideas in relation to decolonising a curriculum. Additional work on this document will form part of the workshop activities.
Number of participants:
A maximum of 40 participants in person and 30 participants online.

How the Black Lives Matter movement is changing advertising globally – and why other communities are speaking up too.
Typically, advertising contains two messages, one from the brand and one that reflects cultural thinking. Examples include adverts selling cleaning products that show stereotypes of women as housewives, or tech adverts that depict white men as head of companies. These messages re-enforce how society thinks.
Across the world, brands such as Nike and PayPal have been expressing solidarity with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement by issuing statements and adverts of support—from Nike adapting their memorable tagline of “Just Do It” by asking consumers “for once, Don’t Do It”, to the $500 million donation from PayPal. In the post-Black Lives Matter movement period, adverts in the UK and US appear to represent a more diverse representation of race, undoubtedly also thanks to the positive impact of the BLM movement.
But has the Black Lives Matter movement made an impact in causing other races to be less discriminated elsewhere?
