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.This monstrosity was especially associated with the fluids that cross over female body boundaries. She is beginning work on her next book, which will focus specifically on one of these bodily fluids.Provisionally titled, "Breast Milk: From Greco-Roman Myth to Medieval Mysticism", this book will investigate textual and visual representations of lactation. Dr.Miller has taught courses in Latin, Greco-Roman literature, Medieval literature, Classical archeology, Classical history, Classical medicine, and Gender Studies. At Duquesne, she teaches courses in the Service Learning program and oversees the Classical Society. In her spare time, she likes to cook, collect skulls, and read books to her two children.
