Short summary
Geology is not apolitical. Here, we explore what decolonising the curriculum means, both in a wider sense and specifically for the discipline of geology. We outline some of the colonial past of the discipline and also point to its colonial present in the hope that we can do better in the future. We explain some of the discipline-specific jargon, theory, and practice associated with decolonising. Some suggestions are included to help geology teams begin their decolonising the curriculum journey.
