Laura J. Yakas

LEO Lecturer I

Laura J. Yakas

Dr. Laura Yakas completed her PhD in anthropology and social work here at the University of Michigan in 2018. Her passion is disability justice (especially the Mad Pride and neurodiversity movements) and its connection to other forms of anti-oppression like intersectional feminism, antiracism and decolonization. She is committed to healing-centered pedagogy, and loves to facilitate transformative courses about social justice and oppression. She also enjoys writing and performing radical musical comedy – because making fun of the world is another way to transform it!
