Director of Honors Academic Advising
Marie D. Martinez is the Director of Academic Advising in the John V. Roach Honors College. She earned her M.A. in English at Midwestern State University, and she is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in English at Texas Christian University. Since 2009, Marie has enjoyed teaching a variety of composition and literature courses at TCU.
Her primary research areas include British literature in the nineteenth century and Victorian periodicals. Marie is particularly interested in transatlantic discourses and networks of nineteenth-century periodicals and other literatures as they intersect with and complicate Victorian theories of contagion, travel, and sensation fiction. Her dissertation project is entitled “Victorian Outbreak Narratives: The Influence of Cholera on the Nineteenth- Century Literary Imagination.”
Marie’s role as the Director of Honors Academic Advising gives her the opportunity to work closely with Honors faculty, staff, and students. She also works with Dr. Ron Pitcock, the Director of Prestigious Scholarships, to support students at TCU who are interested in pursuing prestigious scholarships.
