Elise Bouhet’s research focuses on contemporary French and American culture in a comparative framework. She is currently writing a dissertation examining the space of the game in the riots that took place in France in 2005. As a case study, this event allows her to explore broader questions currently facing French society such as national identity, immigration, integration, and forms of protest.

Her teaching philosophy rests on four principles. She believes that the teaching of French should be learner-centered; culturally contextualized; that it should communicate passion for the content; and that it should be refined and improved through experience.  She always encourages creativity in her classroom and enables students to develop their skills through participation in theater and plays.  In addition, she implements technology in the classroom, such as videos and podcasts.
