Bio:

Katherine Martinez, Ph.D., grew up in Southwestern Colorado and attended college as a first-generation student.  She began her academic career interested in criminology, later realizing that she mostly had an interest in gender within the criminal justice system.  As such, she studied abroad in The Netherlands as an undergraduate in 2002 to learn about sex and gender, completing her doctorate in Sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, with additional certification in Women’s Studies and Ethnic Studies in 2011.  Her dissertation research focused on bodies and embodiment, relating specifically to self-objectification, for consensual bondage, discipline, Dominance/submission, sadomasochism (BDSM) participants.

One chapter of her dissertation, "Somebody's fetish: Self-objectification and body satisfaction among consensual sadomasochists" can be found in the Journal of Sex Research.  Today, Katherine writes and teaches on a range of topics about bodies/embodiment, gender, race, class and sexuality at the Gender Institute for Teaching and Advocacy.  Katherine’s more recent research examines sibling-to-sibling violence and the ways in which individuals experience and come to understand their experiences with this form of violence.  Her two co-authored articles, "By the hands of our brothers: A comparison of sibling aggression for victimized heterosexual and sexual minority women" and "Responses to physical sibling violence: A descriptive analysis of victims' retrospective accounts" can be found at the Journal of GLBT Family Studies and Journal of Family Violence, respectively. Her broader academic interests are in queer theories, practices, and activism, critical race studies, and feminist-marxism.
