BACKGROUD
For the past 18 years, northeast Georgia has been Stephanie’s home.  Although she teaches in the English department, she has a passion for US history, and she shares this with her students through her courses.  Stephanie also appreciates a good movie; more and more she brings film into the classroom.  Her women writer’s course focuses on issues of adaptation; students critique story-telling strategies when women’s words are brought to the silver screen.  If she could invite one director to her class, Stephanie would ask Julie Dash to talk about Daughters of the Dust.
