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. She is particularly interested in women's history, the history of borderlands, war and society, early modern Atlantic history, and digital history.

Her research focuses on women's roles as public, martial actors in the border wars between New England, New France, and Native polities in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. She is the author of "'As Potent a Prince As Any Round About Her': Rethinking Weetamoo of the Pocasset and Native Female Leadership in Early America," published in the Journal of Women's History. Her book, Women at War in the Borderlands of the Early American Northeast, was published by the University of North Carolina Press.

More recently, she has been working on a new digital history project that re-catalogues thousands of sources in American history that contain outdated information and are difficult for scholars and students to find. This project also brings together hundreds of thousands of free primary sources from across the internet to provide a place where students and scholars, especially those without subscriptions to expensive databases, can conduct historical research. 

Dr. Martino's teaching interests include Colonial American history, American women's history, the American Revolution, and digital history methodologies. Professor Martino is also active in UA's Women's Studies Program.
