Associate Professor – French
Stacey Weber-Fève is an Associate Professor of French. She came to Iowa State University in 2006 after completing her graduate schooling at The Ohio State University (Masters degree, 2001; Ph.D., 2006). A specialist of French and Francophone Cinemas, her early research focused mostly on the re/presentation of women (housewives, working mothers, revolutionaries) in women’s contemporary filmmaking and lifewriting in France, Algeria, and Tunisia. More recently, her agenda has expanded to the study of trans/national cinema through the theoretical lenses of Star Studies and Cinematic Comedy. Her research takes into account cinematographic constructions and performances of gender, subjectivity, identity, ethnicity and “nation” through women’s filmmaking, comedy,and stardom.
As a dedicated practitioner, Weber-Fève also seeks ways to explore how second-language research study can directly inform foreign language teaching, especially in the design of instructional support materials and curricula. In this second area of scholarship, she focuses on literacy-based approaches and input-to-output structuring to the teaching and learning of French language and French/Francophone cinemas, literatures, and cultures across all levels of the foreign language curriculum as well as where they intersect with the use of technology inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to serving as an active member of the Department of World Languages and Cultures and French Program in several roles, she is an active member of the ISU World Film Studies Program (WFS) and WLC Languages and Cultures for Professions Program (LCP). She also serves on the steering committee for the ISU Program in Women’s and Gender Studies.
