About Prof. Murphy
Susanne Murphy has degrees in English and Education from Fordham, Yale, and Southern Connecticut State University. She has been the director of student teaching and a lecturer in children’s literature, critical literacy, and human communication at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
Prior to working in higher education, Prof. Murphy worked in a variety of PK-12 districts as both a teacher and administrator and retains her strong interest in issues of equity and social justice.
Past publications include essays in Spenser’s poetry, the education of the academically talented, the integration of technology into classroom practice, and issues of plagiarism in a re-tweeting world. Recent work focuses on postmodernism in picture books, multimodal storytelling, and the intersection of humanity and "artificial" intelligence.
With a passion for poetry and gardening, Prof. Murphy still aspires to create the definitive murder mystery, somehow incorporating shoes.
