He teaches courses in twentieth-century and contemporary British fiction and film. His research and teaching focus on subjects as diverse as post-war and contemporary British and American literature and culture, Cold War history, foreign cinema, satire, postcolonial literature, and popular music (particularly punk, post-punk, and new wave).  Dr. Martínez is also affiliated with EIU's programs in Latin American Studies and Women's Studies.
