Noor El-Husseini

Noor is a spoken word poet, educator and social justice advocate. She completed her undergrad at Concordia University in Creative Writing with a minor in English Literature, and her Masters in Education at the University of Ottawa with a concentration in Societies, Cultures and Languages. Her research interests involve community-directed and anti-oppressive approaches, and spoken word poetry as a way to listen to otherwise marginalized youth voices name/resist their own oppression(s) and tell their counternarratives.

Most recently, she acted as the Network Coordinator for the Réseau de Savoir sur l’Équité | Equity Knowledge Network (RSEKN), hosted by the Faculty of Education and Centre for Research on Educational and Community Services (CRECS) at the University of Ottawa. Presently, she is a Research Assistant in the Faculty of Education at York University for the FESI-RSEKN team, and volunteering with the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture.
