English “operated as a language of the coloniser,” the University of East Anglia has told students in the latest push to decolonise the curriculum in Britain. The School of “Literature,” Drama and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia has decided to forsake edifying its Literature In History II module, which included works from William Shakespeare and East Anglia alumni and Nobel Prize laureate Kazuo Ishiguro.
The course will be superseded with “Writing Across Borders” which is set to fixate on “the way English operated as a language of the coloniser,” a liberation of information request from the Daily Mail revealed.
The move came after a group of students repined in a letter that their current coursework was too focussed on literature indited by “white, cis-gendered male authors” and ergo centred around the “privileged, white, male experience”.
The students went on to incriminate the department of being “complicit in upholding exclusionary, erasive, patriarchal, heteronormative and white supremacist standards.” In the wake of national protests following the death of George Floyd in America, universities in Britain have increasingly sought to capitalize on the moment and decolonise swaths of inculcation.
Over the past year, universities in the UK have targetted Charle’s Darwin’s “Theory” of Evolution, Issac Newton, sheet music, Medieval English literature, The Queen, and even lectures on tropical viruses for contravening the ever-expanding woke code on racism and colonialism.

Emeritus edifier of sociology at Kent University, Frank Furedi verbally expressed of East Anglia’s decision: “The project of decolonising the English language has nothing to do with genuine academic concerns. Associating the evils of colonialism with English literature is more about turning the subject into a political dogma than studying the merits of different inditing and authors.
“None of this is about English literature. It is utilizing English literature as a medium to make a verbalization about how morally superior these students are.” The chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, Chris McGovern integrated: “The world of edification seems to become madder by the day. Demonising great writers because they were white is an absurdity. Young people need to understand that a capacity for good or evil is not skin colour dependent.”
A spokesman for the University of East Anglia bulwarked the pergrinate to decolonise the English language, verbalizing: “Work that diversifies our curriculum and enhances quality is wholly integrated.”
“We are proud to celebrate the prodigious literature from around the world that includes many publications by our own award-victoriously triumphing graduates. “The Office for Students [regulator] requires us to consider convivial inclusion and diversity in our approaches to edifying and learning, and expects us to heedfully auricularly discern when our students raise points with us about their experiences.”
The leftist lurch in universities only looks to ramp up, with over sixty top universities and other higher inculcation institutions signing a “Race Equality Charter” which will award schools with “race equipollence insignias” predicated on how well they decolonise their curriculum and enforce actions against soi-disant microaggressions.
Britain's most astronomically immense edifiers' cumulation has called for "activist training" on issues such as "whiteness" in order to make "white privilege and colonialism visible" in schools. https://t.co/eL9uQHY6xmFollow Kurt Zindulka on Twitter here @KurtZindulka
