Centre for Women's Studies in Education
The Centre for Women's Studies in Education (CWSE) is a research centre at the University of Toronto, housed within the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). Established in July 1983 and designed to foster feminist scholarship, teaching, and activism relevant to education, broadly defined, CWSE consists of faculty, staff, students, researchers and educators in the larger feminist community within and outside of the university.
We are committed to: promoting and supporting the disciplinary and interdisciplinary feminist research programs at OISE/UT; developing and implementing programming that enriches the scholarly and professional development of staff, students, and educators; and connecting scholarship, education and activism through constructive and critical dialogues with feminist communities locally, nationally and globally.
Dear CWSE Community,
It is with great sadness that we write to let you know that after a short battle with cancer, Roxana Ng, head of the CWSE and faculty member in the Adult Education and Community Development department at OISE, passed away January 12, 2013, surrounded by friends and family.
The CWSE is holding open community space all this week (Jan 14-17) for everyone who wishes to join us in remembering and mourning Roxana. The CWSE will be open Monday to Thursday, 12-5pm each day (room 2-225, OISE building).
