Associate Professor of English
Martina Sciolino has been studying the post-1945 American Novel and its theoretical contexts for 32 years, beginning with her undergraduate work at State University of New York at Buffalo where she also received her PhD in 1987 before coming to USM. She has delivered papers and published articles on twentieth and twenty-first century literature and critical theory, on the mental illness memoir in the Prozac era, and on neoshamanism and postmodernism. She is currently working on a book about environmentalist art and activism, The Discursive Earth. Her courses explore synergies between environmental literacy and contemporary literature, the impact of globalization on world literatures written in English, and they offer opportunities for engaged learning and community service.
