Stacey Peebles came to Centre in 2011 as assistant professor of English and director of the Film Studies program. She holds a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin.
Before coming to Centre, she was the assistant director of Lloyd International Honors College at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and also worked as a professor and administrator in the Honors College of The University of Houston.
Her research areas include the representation of war and violence, film adaptation, and the contemporary American author Cormac McCarthy. Her book Welcome to the Suck: Narrating the American Soldier's Experience in Iraq (Cornell University Press, 2011) addresses stories about this recent conflict in literature, film, and new media, and she has published articles on Flannery O'Connor, Terrence Malick, and Michael Herr. Peebles has been speaking and writing about Cormac McCarthy since 1998, and is the editor of The Cormac McCarthy Journal.
Her current projects include a book tentatively titled Cormac McCarthy in Performance that explores the author's work in theater, screenplays, and film adaptations by others, as well as articles on the use of digital verité in Iraq War films and on Larry Heinemann's seminal Vietnam novel Paco's Story.
At Centre, Peebles teaches courses in film and American literature, as well as Humanities I and II.
