Position title: Graduate Student
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.
Leah is pursuing research into Yorùbá activism, mutual aid, and care practices related to gender and sexuality in West Africa. They are interested in employing reflexive, reciprocal, and emancipatory research methods to explore the ways in which Yorùbás of nonnormative genders and sexualities conceive of their own identities and differences, are understood and treated by others, and claim their rights and dignity.
