Lara Giordano grew up in northern California and came to Lawrence via Nashville via Seattle via Walla Walla.
She spends a lot of time thinking about what the arts – and film, in particular – can tell us about our ethical and political commitments and about the power of thoughtful dialogue.
When not engaged in the sedentary life of the academic, she is usually walking with – or, more likely, chasing after – her two-year-old daughter, or trying out new recipes in the kitchen while listening to podcasts about politics. She also enjoys jogging and crossword puzzling.
