    Nydia A. Martinez, PhD

    Assistant Professor
    Patterson 111 F
    Phone: 509-359-6088
    Curriculum Vitae

    Specializations: Chicana/o History, 20th Century Mexican History, Latin American History, social movements, transnational history, gender, and borderlands history.
    Professional Profile: My research interests are in twentieth-century Mexican history, Mexican American (Chicana/o) history, Latin American history, borderlands history, Third World Liberation movements, gender, and transnational history. My bilingual and bicultural background and community involvement with Latina/o students and their families, has deeply informed my multidisciplinary research interests, which focuses on Mexican and Chicana/o solidarity movements in the 1960s and 1970s.
    Teaching Philosophy: My approach to teaching history and advising students have a general goal: create an atmosphere of student engagement to promote critical thinking skills in recognition of our global society. This approach has emanated from my experience teaching, collaborating, and guiding diverse groups of students that include returning professionals, first generation college students, non-history majors, traditional students, advance history majors, underrepresented communities, and international students. Therefore, awareness and adaptability to the unique dynamics of each class are central principles for me to create a good learning environment.
