In order to support the University’s Decolonising London Met ambitions within the Education for Social Justice Framework, Library Services has developed these resources to enable teaching staff to reflect on the content in their taught provision and to investigate how supporting materials may be made more diverse and equitable.
Our Decolonising reading lists - a guide for academics provides four clear steps in the path to introducing decolonised resources onto a reading list.
You can also watch the recording of a staff development session on choosing decolonised content for reading lists which Library Services delivered in June 2021.
Below you will find a number of resources to aid in the identification of new decolonised content.
One of our suppliers, ProQuest, has provided this extensive Diversity, Equity and Inclusion list of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion titles from a selection of their publishers. You may consider adding from these or it may help give you some ideas.
We also have a collection of Duke University Press e-book titles in our holdings and you may find that this selection Duke University Press decolonising suggestions chosen by Library Services staff, is helpful when decolonising your reading lists.
The list of publishers we have created below is not exhaustive, but it may offer titles or examples that you could add to your reading list or it may just serve as an inspiration!
