‘We especially welcome applications from members of visible minority groups: reflections on race, gender and life at three universities (Race, Ethnicity and Education, 2015)

Annette Henry is a Professor in the Department of Language and Literacy Education and cross-appointed to the Institute for Race, Gender, Sexuality and Social Justice. She was a former department head and held the David Lam Chair in Multicultural Education in the Faculty of Education. She held previous academic positions at the University of Washington and the University of Illinois. She writes about Black girls and Black women.  She is the author of Taking Back Control: African Canadian Teachers’ lives and Practice, the first book on Black women teachers’ lives and practice in Canada. Her scholarship examines race, class, language, gender and culture in socio-cultural contexts of teaching and learning, Black oral histories, and Black women teachers’ practice in Canada, the U.S. and the Caribbean. She has written extensively about race, gender and equity in the academy, diverse feminisms and conceptual and methodological research issues. She is the recipient of several academic and community awards, including the Canadian Association of University Teachers Equity Award and the Outstanding Contributions to Gender Equity Award from the American Educational Research Association. Last month, she was honoured as one of  100 Accomplished Black Women for 2022.
