Shawn Murphy

Professor of Journalism

Since 1992 I have taught a wide variety of journalism courses and advised student-run newspapers. After teaching and advising at Oklahoma Panhandle State University and Midland Lutheran College in Nebraska, in 1997 I came to SUNY Plattsburgh. Prior to teaching and advising, I worked throughout New England and in Florida as a reporter, editor and photographer for several community newspapers and a news magazine. I am currently working on a book about food that encompasses all the things that concern me when purchasing it: health and nutrition, the environment, sustainability, business, politics, labor practices, and social justice.
