Dr. Dupuy's research focuses on language teacher professional development, literacy-based approaches to teaching and learning, multimodality, digital social annotated reading, and on experiential learning as a theoretical and practical framework for language education in home and study-abroad contexts. She has authored and co-authored numerous articles and book chapters. Her book-length projects include A Multiliteracies Framework for Collegiate Foreign Language Teaching (Pearson Higher Education, US, 2015) co-authored with Heather Willis Allen (University of Wisconsin, Madison) and Kate Paesani (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities), which outlines a coherent pedagogical framework grounded in texts and the concept of literacy for college foreign language programs; Pathways to Paradigm Change: A Critical Examination of Prevailing Discourses and Ideologies in Foreign Language Education (Cengage, US, 2019) co-edited with  Kristen Michelson (Texas Tech University) which focuses on how ideologies and discourses currently prevailing in foreign language education are barriers to paradigm change and innovation; Language Learning and Professionalization in Higher Education: Pathways to Preparing Learners and Teachers in/for the 21st Century (Research Publishing, France, 2020) co-edited with Muriel Grosbois (Cnam, Paris, France) which explores language learning and professionalization by addressing the gap between pressing needs for enhanced soft skills in work environments wherein technology-mediated, multilingual communication is increasingly the norm and current foreign language learning offerings in higher education. She and Chantelle Warner (University of Arizona) recently guest edited a special issue of Intercultural Communication Education titled Intercultural Communicative Competence and Mobility: Perspectives on Virtual, Physical, and Critical Dimensions (Castledown Publishers, Australia, 2021).
