An occasional series where faculty answer two questions, one about the mind and one about the body (or lunchbox).
Dr. Kate Laity
Question 1: What are you working on right now?
Answer 1: I’m putting together a book proposal on masculinities in medieval films.
(Dr. Laity says that she will be looking at films that set up the dynamic between two different models of masculinity: the warrior and the knight. In depicting these two models, the films expose modern anxieties about masculinity.)
Question 2: What did you have for lunch today?
Answer 2: Black bean soup.
