Cambridge University students’ “decolonisation” campaign has spread to Classics, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering classes

Over 30 university departments will be targeted by students as they step up their efforts to examine whether courses are too dominated by white, male, Euro-centric perspectives. Working groups have been set up to discuss possible changes in a number of subjects, according to a spreadsheet seen by The Daily Telegraph.

The Geography Faculty is described as being “fairly far ahead” in its efforts to decolonise the curriculum, while the Law, Sociology and Architecture faculties have set up decolonisation working groups. Chemistry, Medicine and Engineering are all featured on the list of subjects that have been earmarked for further campaigning, according to the document which was posted on the “Decolonise Cambridge” Facebook group.
