Anthony DePalma, B.A.

Writer-in-Residence
College of Communication and the Arts

After 22 years as a reporter and foreign correspondent at The New York Times, I have returned to Seton Hall University as the University's first professional writer-in-residence. That means that I am teaching specialized journalism courses offered in the Department of Communication. I also teach courses on Latin American issues, with a focus on Mexico and Cuba, that are cross-listed with the Latin American and Latino/Latina Studies Program and available to students in the Whitehead School of Diplomacy and International Relations. I continue to write widely, contributing to The New York Times and other publications. In 2010, I published my latest book, "City of Dust," which deals with the aftermath of the destruction of the World Trade Center and the illnesses caused by the ensuing contamination, which constituted the greatest environmental disaster in New York history. I also have extensive experience in television news, magazine writing and new media. I am available to students outside of class, as well as to University students not enrolled in my classes who want to learn more about writing.
