Biography

Sarah Alison Miller joined the Classics department at Duquesne University in 2008. Professor Miller received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2008).  Her book, "Medieval Monstrosity and the Female Body" (Routledge 2010), argues that the female anatomy and its physiological processes were marked as "monstrous" in medieval medical, erotic, and religious literature. She is currently working on her second book, "The History and Culture of Breast Milk: From Greco-Roman Myth to Medieval Mysticism", to be published by Routledge in 2015.  Dr.Miller has taught courses in Latin, Greco-Roman literature, Early-Christian and Medieval literature, Classical archaeology, Classical history, and Gender Studies. She is particularly interested in the history of the body, ancient gynecology, and monsters. At Duquesne, she teaches courses in the Service Learning program and oversees the Classical Society. In her spare time, she likes to cook with her toddler, read to her infant, and collect skulls.
