Robyn S. Martin is a 4th generation native of Flagstaff.  Her NAU roots run deep: her grandmother earned her teaching certificate from NAU (then the Arizona Normal School) in 1922, her parents earned their education degrees from NAU (then Arizona State College) in the 1950s, and Robyn earned both her B.A. degree in English and M.A. Degree in English (Rhetoric and Professional Writing) from NAU.  When she’s not hiking a trail on the Peaks, the high desert, or stretching in a bikram yoga studio, Robyn can most likely be found running a river somewhere on the Colorado Plateau.  Robyn’s research and publications include ecological oral histories; some of that work was included in What Was Past and What Remains, a compilation of ecological oral histories gathered in Northern Arizona and  published by the University of Arizona Press in 2010.  She loves to teach in Honors and received the Outstanding Honors Instructor award in April 2011. Her specialties include argument, place-based, Southwestern and environmental issues and American studies in general.
