PDF icon CV (114.7 KB)

Lorenzo teaches all levels of French (and occasionally Italian) as part of a major curricular realignment to the task-based method following internationally recognized proficiency standards. He coordinated the transition to a new textbook and program at the Intermediate level in 2016/17, and developed a new curriculum for the Advanced level in 2017/2018. Lorenzo earned his Ph.D. in French from Stanford writing a dissertation challenging the exclusiveness of positive values in Albert Camus’s solar humanism. He has published work on Camus, the "adjunctification" of higher education, and his current research focuses on student advancement and retention in the foreign language classroom. Before coming to UW in 2015, he taught French and Italian and worked as a study abroad adviser at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, CA.
