ANTI-RACISM AND DECOLONIAL APPROACHES
This portal contains hundreds of references arranged along subject, themes and media. It provides access to materials on anti-racist, postcolonial and decolonising art histories and is meant for anyone conducting research in those areas in art history or in visual or spatial culture. It is also meant to support academics in making meaningful change in their departments, their teaching and their research.
The initial iteration of the portal comprised eight distinct pdf bibliographies (see below). This has now been expanded to take the form of a library of INTERACTIVE ANTI-RACISM RESOURCES where readers can submit their own contributions to refresh the material over time making and ensuring its ongoing relevance.
We encourage members of our community to contribute to the interactive bibliographic resources above through this add bibliography reference form.
The resource portal was conceived and initiated by members of the Association’s Higher Education Committee (HEC) and supported by contributions from a crowdfunding initiative. It was guided by Amy Tobin, Curator, Contemporary Programmes, Kettles Yard and Lecturer, Department of Art History, University of Cambridge and Joanna Woodall, Professor, Courtauld Institute of Art, and the initial PDF bibliographies were compiled by Edwin Coomasaru. The enhanced interactive portal was created in conjunction with the HEC, with broadening and further compilation by Kristina Dziedzic Wright. Many thanks to all involved.
If required, here are the PDF versions of the original eight bibliographies:
