Dr. Stice has taught at PBA since 2012 in the history department and in the Frederick M. Supper Honors Program. Her research interests include World War I, empires, European print culture, sport, and world history. Dr. Stice’s dissertation, “Empire Between the Lines: Constructions of Empire in British and French Trench Newspapers of World War I” explored the ways in which the First World War was an imperial experience for British and French soldiers. She has presented at numerous conferences on topics related to World War I and French and British history.

Dr. Stice has teaching experience in European, imperial, and world history; she has engaged in collaborative research with undergraduates as part of the Arts and Sciences undergraduate research program and has integrated service learning into history classes. Dr. Stice is the faculty liaison at PBA for the Harry S. Truman Scholarship and the Woodrow Wilson Scholarship and serves as the advisor for the History Club.

On campus, Dr. Stice founded and organizes “I Remember” events, where faculty and staff share their personal memories and experiences of famous events. Faculty have shared where they were and what they remember from the assassination of JFK, the Challenger explosion, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and other events. These events allow students and faculty to engage the differences and the complicated relationship between history and memory and the ways in which national historical narratives are constructed.
