The workshop will start  at 12.45 a with a light lunch and discuss the following three themes.

 First, what is meant by ‘diversifying the curriculum’ and why does it matter? Colleagues from Cambridge and UCL will join us to discuss this. 

 Second, what lessons could be learned from how other institutions of higher education have approached curriculum diversification? Here, the various challenges and possibilities as found at SOAS, UCL and the University of Cape Town will be outlined.  

 Finally, which roads ahead are, or ought to be available to the Oxford Law Faculty with regard to diversifying the curriculum? The third and final panel includes colleagues from the Law Faculty and the Law Library.

 This workshop is aimed as a reflective exercise of how we teach, the content of our teaching, and the extent of its inclusiveness. I hope that as many as possible will be able to join in on these important discussions. 

 There is no need to register but please let me know (email Sanja.Bogojevic@lmh.ox.ac.uk ) should you wish to attend and whether you have any dietary requirements for lunch purposes.
