Stephanie Lebas Huber (PhD 2022) specializes in twentieth century painting and film history. In the fall of 2022 she began a postdoctoral fellowship at the Leonard Lauder Center Research Center of Modern Art at the Metropolitan Museum.
Dr. Huber has previously held fellowships from the Mellon Council for European Studies and the Isamu Noguchi Museum, a scholarship from the American Association for Netherlandic Studies, and a Fulbright to the Netherlands.
Her research concerns the variety of ways in which film influenced modernist figurative painting. In a future project she intends to study the way that the international and interdisciplinary genre of Magic Realism arose during the twentieth century as a way to address changes brought by modernity, totalitarianism regimes, and cultural imperialism.
