    Luka Stojanovic (he/they) is a disabled, neurodivergent, queer, Serbian-Canadian who holds an Honours B.A. with Specialization in Philosophy from the University of Ottawa (2018), an MPhil in Film and Screen Studies from the University of Cambridge (2019), and an M.A. in Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies (2023) from Trent University. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Canadian Studies at Trent University where his work extends critical scholarship on healthcare, aging, and disability politics through participatory, arts-based research examining the practices and perspectives of older adults living with chronic pain.

    While born in Toronto and having grown up in Ottawa, Luka is fortunate to call Peterborough/Nogojiwanong home. Luka is an active volunteer and community organizer who has worked with organizations including Artspace Peterborough, Peterborough Action for Tiny Homes, Peterborough Aids Resource Network, and the Reframe Film Festival. In his free time, he enjoys trying new cafes, road trips, and long nature walks. Luka is looking forward to learning from the diverse leaders involved in the Scholarship program who will not only support developing a more holistic approach to his work in service of advancing disability rights/justice, but also foster brave spaces of empathy that support his willingness to be challenged.
