Join Library, Archives & Learning Services, the Office of Institutional Equity and the Open University for a discussion on inclusion and belonging in libraries in the academy.

'Narrative Expansions: Interpreting Decolonisation in Academic Libraries', edited by Jess Crilly and Regina Everitt (Director of Library, Archives & Learning Services) explores the ways in which academic libraries are working to address the historic legacies of colonialism, in the context of decolonising the curriculum and the university.

Hear from some of the book's contributing authors as they share their interpretations of  'decolonisation' and the implications for inclusion and belonging in academic libraries:

  • Angela Pashia, Head of Learning and Research Support at University of West Georgia
  • Marilyn Clarke, Director of Library Services at Goldsmiths, University of London
  • Sara Ewing, Lecturer in Academic Literacies in the Centre for Language and Academic Literacies at Goldsmiths, University of London
  • Professor Marcia Wilson, Dean of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and Lurraine Jones, Deputy Dean of EDI at the Open University

This virtual event will take place at 18:00-19:30 on Thursday 26 May via MS Teams.

Staff, students, alumni and members of the public are all welcome.
