COVID-19 Updates: Fall Semester

Kathryn Kramer

Assistant Professor of English and American Literatures


Kathryn Kramer has taught creative writing and literature in the Department of English and American Literatures since 1997.  She’s previously taught at Washington University, the University of Cincinnati, and Marlboro College.  She received an M.A. in writing from Johns Hopkins.
She’s the author of several novels, most recently Sweet Water, short fiction, and non-fiction articles.  She’s currently completing a memoir entitled Missing History:  The Covert Education of a Child of the Great Books, about the experience of being brought up in the Socratic tradition.  (She is not the Kathryn Kramer who is the author of Love’s Blazing Ecstasy, Flame of Desire, and other books, as has sometimes been thought.)  On a volunteer basis she teaches English as a second language to migrant workers in Vermont and has an Undergraduate Collaborative Research Fund grant from the college to work with a student to develop an ESL textbook for this population.
