A Midwestern native, Kathryn Miles received her Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy and Women’s Studies from Saint Louis University. She then moved east and received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Delaware, where she focused on intergenerational responses to landscape and place. Since that time, she has published both her scholarly and popular work in dozens of magazines and journals including Best American Essays, The Bioregional Imagination, Ecotone, History, How To Write About Anything, Outside, Popular Mechanics, and Terrain.
Miles is the author of three books, including Adventures with Ari (2009), All Standing (Simon & Schuster 2012), and Superstorm: Nine Days Inside Hurricane Sandy (Dutton 2014), which was recently named a “must read” by Newsday. She is currently at work on a forthcoming book that delves into seismic science and America’s earthquake preparedness.
At Green Mountain College, Miles teaches in three of the college’s low residency Masters Programs, and she enjoys working with students from across the globe as they gain a better understanding of their own ecological identity.
