Biography
Pamela Martin, assistant professor of politics and international relations, joined the Coastal Carolina University faculty in 2003. She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland, College Park, and has taught at La Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador. Martin is also the director of the International and Global Studies minor, as well as co-adviser to the Globalist Club.

Her most recent book, “The Globalization of Contentious Politics: The Amazonian Indigenous Rights Movement,” analyzes the benefits and challenges of global processes on indigenous peoples in some of the most remote areas of the world. Currently, she is researching the role of private, multinational lending institutions in local development projects such as oil extraction and its impact on democratic institution building.

Her research and writing focus on social movements, globalization, and private authority in the international system.
