Lecturer, The Writing Program

Melissa Murata



A long-time Roadrunner, I graduated twice from UTSA before heading to SUNY Albany to work on my PhD. I specialize in Walt Whitman Studies, Nineteenth-Century American Literature, Print Culture, and Rhetoric and Composition. My infatuation with Walt Whitman is well documented and I have been know to spontaneously and enthusiastically break out in soliloquy on his many merits and contributions. In my free time, I am engaged in passionate affairs with Netflix, and my Basset Hound- Puck.
