              Jennifer Keck fonds
              CA ON00159 P113 · Fonds · 1976-2002

              The Jennifer Keck fonds attests to her professional and public involvement in matters related to social justice. Her training and employment in social work and commitment to improving the lives of others is reflected in her scholarly works and records that show her community involvement. The documents illustrate her exploration of topics such as labour, welfare, Indigenous issues, community development and organizing, as well as poverty, employment, and issues related to women and families. These interests are reflected in the records created through projects that she undertook as an academic, such as the multifaceted Women at INCO project. The fonds indicates that she addressed these same issues in her community activism, through her involvement in Better Beginnings, Better Futures, Sudbury Women's Centre, Myths and Mirrors Community Arts, Circles of Strength: Sudbury Breast Cancer Support Group, and through frequent contributions to local media. Her work as a researcher for the Anti-Mercury Ojibwa Group and for her own publications on government job creation initiatives, labour and community issues is also represented in textual form.

              These records, generated during Dr. Keck's professional career, also reveal her personal interests and goals. The speeches, presentations and workshops that are documented in the fonds reflect her struggle with cancer, her commitment to the underprivileged and her strong affiliation with feminist theory and practice.

              The fonds comprises course and teaching materials, documentation, professional correspondence, administrative materials, and items that attest to Dr. Keck's scholarly output, such as presentations, publications and workshops. The fonds also contains photographs, physical objects and audio and videocassettes.

              The majority of the documents contained in this fonds were created during Dr. Keck's time as a professor in the School of Social Work, Laurentian University. The fonds also comprises a comprehensive body of textual, audiovisual and photographic material on the Women at INCO project, documentation of her PhD thesis, taped interviews and transcripts with the working poor, and material related to her employment as a field research coordinator with the Anti-Mercury Ojibwa Group.
