Dr. Marley specializes in Caribbean and postcolonial literature—and he regularly teaches global literature courses at Francis Marion. His research has been published in journals such as ariel, The Journal of West Indian Literature, MELUS, Criticism, College Literature, and Studies in the Novel.

His recent book, Difficult Reading: Frustration and Form in Anglophone Caribbean Fiction (University of Virginia Press, 2023), examines how experiences of readerly confusion, frustration, and perplexity can bring about new ways of understanding colonial trauma in the Caribbean.
