Dr. Nancy Martin is a Teaching Instructor in the Rutgers Writing Program. Originally from Canada, she received her PhD in English from the University of Oxford in 2017, where she was also research coordinator of the university’s national First World War digitization project. Her research interests focus primarily on British war literature and life-writing, the languages of trauma and testimony, therapeutic writing, and theories of gender, sexuality, and identity. In particular, she is interested in the role of composition in extreme and traumatic circumstances, how the act of writing itself—imposing narrative order on chaotic experience—functions in creating, securing, and repairing one’s multiple identities in war, be it a father, a soldier, a mother, or a nurse. Her work has been published in several edited collections and journals, including Textual Practice and the Journal of International Women’s Studies.
