Gina M. Martino, Ph.D.
Professor Gina Martino received her Ph.D. in early American history from the University of Minnesota after graduating with a B.A. in history and music from St. Olaf College and an M.A. in early modern European history.

In Fall 2015, the Journal of Women's History published her article, "'As Potent a Prince As Any Round About Her': Rethinking Weetamoo of the Pocasset and Native Female Leadership in Early America." Her book, Women at War in the Borderlands of the Early American Northeast, was recently published by the University of North Carolina Press.
