My name is Grant Lattanzi. I am a graduate student, aspiring professor, and actor from Colorado Springs, CO. I've made this website to help chronicle my experiences whether they be scholarly, creative, volunteer, personal, or some combination of the four. Have a look around, and please don't hesitate to reach out via the 'Contact Me' tab if you want to know more or work together.
Like most people, my daily routine, academic pursuits, and orientation to reality in general have been greatly challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic. In May, I finished my time as an undergraduate at TCU: a wonderful experience that concluded with two months of online classes.
And so, I move from horned frogs to bulldogs as I begin my first semester of graduate study at Georgetown University. This fall, I have begun my pursuit of a Masters of Arts in Communication, Culture, and Technology (link). This innovative interdisciplinary program bridges the gap between theory and practice and encourages encourages hands on, problem-centric scholarship through a flexible curriculum that allows students to develop expertise in accordance with their interests. My goal following earning my MA is to enroll in doctoral study, yet I am open to, and excited about, any other opportunities that may present themselves as I live and learn in our nation's capital.
I am currently conducting my studies remotely. In addition to school, I am working as a research assistant with Georgetown's Digital Health and Happiness Lab (link) exploring the intersection between digital technology, physical & mental health, and well-being.
Almost daily I find myself overcome with excitement, nerves, fear, but most importantly wonder. These next two years, I plan to put that wonder in motion as I explore the world's complexities through research.
