Ditch white men of past, says UCL

Article here. Excerpt:

'Academics at University College London (UCL) are being encouraged to “check their privilege” and reconsider the number of courses that focus on “dead white men” if they want to secure a promotion.

The policy is part of a UCL initiative that is aimed at “challenging traditional Eurocentric, male-dominated curricula and ensuring the work of marginalised scholars on race, sexuality, gender, and disability are fairly represented in curricula”.

The document, obtained by The Daily Telegraph, suggests that researchers applying for lecturer roles should “demonstrate the impact” of their engagement with the institution’s Liberating the Curriculum initiative.'
