This comparative project between Deakin University Geelong, Australia and Coventry University, aims to investigate the practices of decolonisation at two international Universities with a view to understanding the paradoxes, tensions and opportunities emerging from conventional practices taking place in classrooms/curricula and broader institutional spaces. Institutional initiatives to support decolonisation have recently begun in both Universities characterised by a global focus, heightened diversity and similar socio-economic contexts: Coventry University in the United Kingdom and Deakin University Geelong in Australia. The project will focus on exploring the breadth and depth of practices taking place across both institutions, as well as identify the actors leading the changes. The intended outcome is to establish and validate a set of flexible and context-sensitive activities providing a practice model for the HE sector as to how to engage in open, democratic conversations around this complex issue.
