Decolonising the Curriculum - Partnerships with Researchers & Communities

Monday 25 September, 12.30 

Teaching a school group in the museum galleries

With Melanie Rowntree, Learning Officer - Secondary & Young People

Looking at objects and histories that focus on narratives relating to Partition, Learning Officer Mel will focus on how to discuss and connect these objects to students visiting the museum, through foregrounding the voices of academics specialising in Partition. 

Part of our Research Spotlights series.

On the last Monday of the month join Pitt Rivers Museum researchers in the galleries for interactive talks bringing cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary research to life. In 2023, connect with objects and images from the collections and get to know the work of visual and evolutionary anthropologists, curatorial activists, health-care researchers and many other specialists who are accessing the museum to take their research in new directions and to connect with new people.   

Every Monday in October, to coincide with the national Festival of Social Science and the Being Human festival, we’ll have additional talks. Updates to come on our What’s On pages.   

Where: Meet underneath the Star House Crest Pole (Haida Totem Pole) in the Museum’s Court for talks to start at 12.30.  

Who: All are welcome to attend, from families to museum aficionados!  

Accessibility: Talks will be wheelchair accessible, will involve material that can be handled and we can provide follow-up info over email for visitors.
