STEVEN A. MARTIN – PUBLICATIONS AND PROCEEDINGS

Beginning with my first study abroad program in 1995, I wrote journals and took photographs of places I visited and people I met.

Later, I found these very useful in travel writing, coursework essays, and research scholarship.

Since then I have published over 50 articles and papers, ranging from articles in newspapers and magazines to post-graduate theses and research publications in peer-reviewed journals.


Please scroll though my list of publications and proceedings below, cited in APA format. I have done my best to ensure accuracy. If any links are broken, or you notice any errors, please let me know by using the contact form. Thank you.
