Rosemarie Scullion's research and teaching focus on twentieth-century French literary and cultural studies, French women writers and feminist/gender theory, contemporary European literary theory, French cinema, and modern French history and historiography. She offers a wide range of interdisciplinary courses that bring literary, cinematic, cultural texts into critical dialogue, exploring how contemporary theories of history and and subjectivity help us understand how modern French identities (national, ethnic, racial, gender and political) are ideologically and discursively shaped. In her research, she has focused on French novelist Louis-Ferdinand Céline, on the history and memory of the 1930s and the Nazi Occupation of France. She has also written on Duras, Perec, Ponge, Michel Foucault and topics in French cinema. Her current scholarly work is centered on the literary and film production of the Cold War period in France.
