The summative assessment for this module (contributing to your final grade) consists of a 3000-word critical review. In this review, you will analyse the intention, scope, argument and style of four scholarly essays (journal articles or chapters), devoting 600 words to each one.
These texts may come from a variety of fields, including feminist theory, postcolonial theory, critical race theory, disability studies, queer theory or other disciplines. The texts should be chosen in order to explore the discourses of diversity and inclusion that we discuss on the course. Up to two of the scholarly essays (articles or chapters) can be taken from the module core or further readings; at least two should be sourced by you.
You will also choose one diversity and inclusion policy statement to use as a case study throughout the assessment. In your review, you will demonstrate how each scholarly essay helps you to analyse the case study.
You will also include an overall introduction (300 words), which outlines your case study, and a conclusion (300 words), which synthesises how your reading of the critical material contributes to your understanding of how diversity and inclusion function in organizations and the relationship between theory, context and practice.
This assignment is a bit like an annotated bibliography where you choose four scholarly essays and write an in-depth analysis of each one.
