Meet Our Inaugural Guest: Mr Joseph Sean Murphy

Our first guest, Mr Joseph Sean Murphy, or Sean as he’s affectionately known, is a distinguished Politics and History tutor at Cherwell College Oxford. However, Sean’s journey to academia is one that weaves through the world of media and research. Holding a degree in History and Politics as well as a master’s in International Security Studies, Sean’s journey to academia was preceded by an illustrious career in the media industry, where he served as a researcher and producer at various television networks, most notably BBC and London Weekend Television (presently the ITV), taking part in the intricate world of newsmaking and broadcasting!

Sean is also a music connoisseur and a writer. His book called “Letting the Side Down – British Traitors of the Second World War” explores aspects of British Fascism through the life, motivations and the ultimate fate of 200 or so British traitors and Nazi collaborators during the Second World War.

As a senior History and Politics tutor at Cherwell College Oxford, he has consistently inspired his students to explore the complexities of historical analysis and modern politics. Sean’s main areas of historical interest include 19th and 20th century British History, the rise of European dictators, the Second World War, the Cold War, American foreign policy, and Anglo-Irish relations.
