The daughter of immigrants, Marta Sánchez was born and raised in East Los Angeles with her two siblings. Hers is the first generation of her family to enter higher education. Sánchez received her doctorate in Comparative Literature from the University of California, San Diego in 1977. She began her career there, and remained as a professor from 1977 to 2004. Her teaching areas included Chicano, Latin American, and U.S. Ethnic Literature.

Marta Sánchez is the author of Contemporary Chicana Poetry: A Critical Approach to an Emerging Literature (University of California Press, 1985), the first published work that critically analyzes Chicana poetry. Her most recent book, published in 2005 by the University of Texas Press, is entitled “Shakin’ Up” Race and Gender: Intercultural Connections in Puerto Rican, African American and Chicano Narratives and Culture (1965-1995).  Her scholarship has also appeared in PMLA, MELUS, American Literature, American Literary History, Diacritics, and Genders.

Sánchez has been the recipient of numerous fellowships, including the National Chicano Council for Higher Education, the Ford Foundation, the Stanford Humanities Center, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the University of California President’s Office. At UCSD, she participated in the founding of the Preuss Charter School, a program designed for middle and high school students aimed at addressing the low college enrollments of Latino and African American students. She served on its Advisory Board from 2000 to 2004. She has also served on the editorial boards of Meridians: Feminism, Race, Transnationalism, Genders, and Voces: Journal of Chicana/Latina Studies.
