Geoff Morgan delivered a presentation: The Role of the Librarian in Decolonising the Curriculum at the Oxford Brookes University Library annual Teachmeet held at Oxford Brookes University on Monday 17 th June 2019. He discusses how librarians at both Kent University and the University of the Arts London (UAL) have contributed to making the curriculum more inclusive by carrying out an an audit of reading lists and noting the ethnicity and gender of each author. He draws on papers delivered by librarians at the Talis Insight Europe Conference and the Architecture Librarians (ARCLIB) Conference in Venice which were both held at the beginning of May 2019.
