Paul Hanna

Laidlaw Scholar, Columbia University

I'm a second-year student at Columbia University studying film theory and political philosophy/theory! I'm interested in studying art with a strong focus on the sociopolitical, and how geopolitical attitudes are consciously or subconsciously implemented in art. I like to write, read, watch films, bake, play the piano, and take photos! This summer, I examined Napoleon's influence on the political attitudes present in Le rouge et le noir by Stendhal and War and Peace by Tolstoy. (he/him)
