Dyanne K. Martin, Ph.D. Martin

Dyanne K. Martin is a native of Jamaica, a country whose national motto is “Out of many, one people.” Her multicultural background fosters her deep interest in diasporic literatures across the Americas, with an emphasis on Caribbean literature. Her areas of scholarship also include classical rhetoric, visual rhetoric, semiotics, race theory, and Holocaust studies. In her approach to race in literature, Dr. Martin relies squarely on the New Testament promise that Christ “is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has torn down the dividing wall of hostility” (Ephesians 2:14). Her research in this area also examines overlooked spaces of healing and racial reconciliation. Dr. Martin teaches in a dual-appointment role between the English Department and the Christ at the Core Program.
