Lorenzo teaches and coordinates the French 200 sequence as part of a major curricular realignment between language levels following internationally recognized proficiency standards. He earned his Ph.D. in French from Stanford writing a dissertation challenging the exclusiveness of positive values in Albert Camus’s otherwise solar humanism. Lorenzo has published work on Camus, the "adjunctification" of higher education, and his current research focuses on teaching methods of both literature and film 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.
