Decolonising Pedagogies: Gender, Race, Faith in Higher Education

An Excellence in Teaching and Learning Workshop, presented by Professor Heidi Safia Murza

Kent Law School is delighted to welcome Professor Heidi Mirza as the first speaker in its Excellence in Teaching and Learning Series, on Wednesday 29th July, 2:15 – 3:15 pm via Zoom webinar

Brought to you by the Kent Law School Student Success project, the workshop will explore how professional educators can engage in ‘embodied’ intersectional work that enables them to begin the process of ‘decolonising’ their places of teaching and learning. Drawing on her research on the pedagogic practices of teacher educators and their dilemmas of teaching students from different race, faiths and cultures, Professor Mirza will explore the difficult concept of ‘spaces of safety’ which offers us the radical possibility of transcending the ‘stuck’ institutional discourses of ‘diversity’ and racial equality which dominates our educational landscapes in so called ‘post-race times’.

Heidi Safia Mirza is Emeritus Professor of Equality Studies in Education at UCL Institute of Education and Visiting Professor of Race, Faith and Culture at Goldsmith’s College, University of London. She is known for her pioneering research on race, gender and identity in education and has an international reputation for championing equality and human rights for Black, Muslim, Asian women and young people through educational reform.
