Before joining MSVU, Dr. Onuora was an Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) in the Institute for Gender and Development Studies at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus in Kingston, Jamaica, where her teaching and research focused on Transformative Educational Praxis, Black Political Cultures of Resistance, Black Queer Studies and Black/Intersectional feminist theories. Dr Onuora brings to the Faculty of Education a heightened awareness of the experiences of African, Caribbean, and Black communities in both Canada and the global south. Her published works explore critical pedagogy and educational transformation, de-colonizing practices, indigenous epistemologies, and the intersectionality of factors such as gender, sexuality/sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, class, abilities, and culture, and their impact on women’s lived experiences.
