Decolonisation at Cambridge

In this MPhil dissertation, Joe Cotton traces the emergence of the decolonisation movement in Cambridge and describes the various efforts and initiatives across the University.

He writes: “Broadly speaking, decolonisation at Cambridge calls for a rigorous, reflexive and historically-aware curriculum, at an equitable, just and genuinely inclusive university, which refuses to enact or support neo-colonial violence at home or abroad. But rather than just providing a summary, this dissertation aims to stimulate the reflection and shared discussion that is needed for the movement to advance.”

Interested parties are welcome to use and circulate the document to support decolonisation initiatives in Cambridge and further afield.
