About/Bio: Dr. Bartlett enjoys teaching all levels of French language, courses on French and Francophone literatures and cinemas, and interdisciplinary courses such as French 279 "Monsters and Mayhem in the French-Speaking World” where literature, cinema, culture, history, gender, race, religion and politics all intersect. She strives to make learning as active, collaborative and dynamic as possible.

She has studied, lived and worked extensively in France. She has also traveled to Quebec and Belgium. She hopes to have the chance to explore the Francophone Caribbean and Africa. She traveled with students to France in January.
Her research interests have centered on gender issues in Haitian and Algerian literatures and cinemas and in French cinema. Recent projects include an article on masculinities in Algeria and conference presentations on foreign language teaching techniques at the annual American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages Conference (ACTFL). Dr. Bartlett has published articles on women in Lebanese francophone literature; masculinity in French colonial cinema; and the intersections of masculinity, religion and war in Algeria. Her most recent article, “Masculinities, Money, and Mosques in Algeria’s Civil War,” was published online in March 2019 by the Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice.
