Reconstructing humanity’s past is a collaborative project and it is essential that our department welcomes and includes diverse people, voices and contributions. We aim to provide an environment in which diversity is valued, in which staff and students feel a sense of belonging and in which the rights of all are respected.
Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity committee is representative of various areas of work and responsibility in the Archaeology Department. We are active in supporting an inclusive community and in aware-ness raising activities, as well as advocating on EDI issues and influencing policy throughout the University.
Chair of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusive committee: Dr Cathie Draycott
Find out more about EDI activities on our Department News and Events pages.
We are actively working in Archaeology to decolonise our curriculum and have set up a Decolonising Group to which all staff and students are invited to participate. We are working with the university’s Decolonising the Curriculum initiative, internships programme and with other initiatives in the discipline more broadly.
