About Paul Hanna

I'm a second-year student at Columbia University studying Film and Political Philosophy! I'm interested in visual art, film, analytic philosophy, and research on the intersection between the visual/media arts and political philosophy. I also like to write poetry, read, watch films, bake, play the piano, and take photos!

Last summer, I examined Napoleon's influence on the political attitudes present in Le rouge et le noir by Stendhal and War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. (he/him)
