Leah Entenmann has a BA in history from Carleton College and a Master of Public Policy from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Their previous research focused on gender and global policy and human rights, and their prior work has centered around combating systemic and interpersonal violence locally and internationally. They have taught anthropology as an adjunct lecturer at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (part of CUNY) since 2018.
As a first-year doctoral student in Cultural Anthropology, Leah is pursuing research into Nigerian activism related to gender and sexuality. They are interested in employing reflexive, reciprocal, and emancipatory research methods to explore the ways in which Nigerians of nonnormative genders and sexualities conceive of their own identities and differences, are understood and treated by others, and claim their rights and dignity.
