Cambridge University forced to ‘decolonise’ its English literature course and put less emphasis on white authors after student demands

Cambridge University has caved in to a student’s demands to ‘decolonise’ the English curriculum by replacing white authors with black writers.

English Literature professors will be required to ‘ensure the presence’ of Black and Minority Ethnic writers (BME) in their courses.

It follows an open letter from students’ union women’s officer Lola Olufemi, demanding an end to ‘institutional racism’ in the syllabus.
