Robert Martínez completed his PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where his dissertation examined the tension between violence, realism, and dystopian expression in British literature and culture of the 1970s and 1980s. 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.
