Presently, Dr. Martínez holds academic positions at the Universidad de Carlos III de Madrid (Spain) and the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs (USA). From Fall 2015 through Summer 2018, Dr. Martínez serves as a CONEX - Marie Curie Fellow. He earned his Ph.D. in May 2008 from the University of Texas at Austin and has investigated in over 40 archives and libraries. He is a scholar of medieval and early modern Spain, religious minorities and religious converts in Spain (in particular, Sephardic Jews and conversos), and their Spanish trans-Atlantic migration to Mexico and Bolivia. At UC3M, Roger is advancing his project, Global Citizen Scholars: Energizing English and Spanish-Speaking Humanists to Advance Knowledge and Act (GCS – EESSPHAÑA). GCS, a 36-month initiative, is a global educational, research, and social engineering endeavor. It thrusts UC3M into the forefront of (1) reclaiming humanity’s deep-seated cultural curiosity; (2) mobilizing technology to energize English & Spanish-speaking students (Global Citizen Scholars) to learn about and contribute to scholarly research on medieval/early modern Jewish, Christian, and Muslim cooperation and conflict; and (3) developing a new cooperative education-research model for the 21st century.
