Dr Merryn Sherwood Senior Lecturer, Journalism

Merryn Sherwood is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Politics, Media and Philosophy and coordinator of the Bachelor of Media and Communication. She is a former award-winning journalist and international sport media manager, working at events such as the Rugby World Cup and London 2012 Olympic Games. She brings this practical experience into teaching La Trobe’s unique sport journalism subjects and the third-year media internship. Her PhD from La Trobe focused on exploring sports organisations’ move to become media producers, and more broadly her research focuses on media disruption and change. She is a CI on the ARC funded New Beats project, that explores redundancy and reinvention in Australian journalism.
