Library Unlimited: Diversity in reading lists

Reading list evaluator

As a first step why not find out how diverse your reading lists are by measuring them against our  reading list evaluator. 

Ask yourself these questions

  • What are the dominant voices, narratives and perspectives in your reading list?
  • What voices, narratives and perspectives are excluded from your reading list?
  • Are the texts on your reading list Eurocentric or Western-centric?
  • Is the author/s identity or background relevant in the context of the subject?
  • Who is talking about whose culture or experience?
  • What is the place of publication?
  • Are the authors on your reading list male and white?
  • What is the language of the text?
  • Is it a translation or in its original language?
