Elizabeth Anthony is a Lecturer in French at Wake Forest University.  Her interests include contemporary French and Francophone theater and French film.  She has published articles on the representation of Cleopatra in Agnès Varda’s  New Wave film, Cléo de 5 à 7, and fading images and « non-places» in Marie Redonnet’s Splendid Hôtel.  She has presented papers at conferences in Canada, the Caribbean, and France.  Her favorite course to teach, French Crime Stories, stemmed from a paper she presented at the 2004 Romance Languages Film Symposium entitled, “Love and Betrayal in the French Crime Film.”  In addition to teaching language and literature, she enjoys organizing the French Film Series each semester for the Department of Romance Languages.
