Lisa Tarantino


Lisa was the Research Executive Officer of the Institute for Social Justice where she supports the Director, Institute Manager and the Director of the Doctoral Program in Social and Political Thought. Lisa will be dearly and profoundly missed.

She still holds a B.A. in Sociology and Turkology from the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz with an emphasis on Gender Studies and Sociology of the Family and her thesis ‘On the Institutionalization of Same-Sex Families and their Role Allocation’. 

Prior to completing her B.A., she trained as a Bilingual Management Assistant at Deutsche Bank and subsequently worked in a project support role within Compliance Operations.
