Roxanna Ng fonds available at the U of T Archives

April 28, 2016

Roxanna NgThe University of Toronto Archives is pleased to announce that the Roxana Ng fonds is now available to researchers. Professor Roxana Ng (1951-2013) was a Professor at OISE whose research and activism focused on issues facing immigrant women and garment workers, especially in the Canadian context. The first woman of colour to hold a tenure track position at OISE, Professor Ng was also a key researcher in critical pedagogy, decolonizing pedagogy, and embodied learning.

Professor Ng was a true activist-scholar, and worked closely with countless organizations to support and fight for the rights of immigrant women and homeworkers across Canada. In particular, Professor Ng was a key member of the Homeworkers Association (HWA), who organized training, support, and social events for homeworkers, particularly those in the garment industry.

At more than 50 boxes, Professor Ng’s archive documents the work and life of an inspiring scholar and community member. The papers include articles, research notes, subject files, meeting minutes, public education material, and photographs.
