    Miles Osgood

    SLE Lecturer

    BioMiles Osgood is a Lecturer for Structured Liberal Education (SLE). As a former Stanford undergrad, Miles completed his BA in English with a minor in the Classics in 2011. After working at Oxford University Press in New York for two years, Miles earned a PhD in English at Harvard, where he designed and taught courses on global modernism, women's literature, and James Joyce. He has published public essays in Slate, n+1, and the Washington Post, along with academic articles in Modernism/modernity and ARIEL: A Review of International English Literature.

    Miles is at work on a book entitled "The Podium and the Stadium," which uncovers the little-known history of the Olympic Art Competitions of 1912-1948 and argues that twentieth-century world literature self-consciously adopted the qualities of international sport. Across studies of Olympic participants including Robert Graves, Jean Cocteau, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Bunya Koh, and through analysis of sport in the work of H.D., Ralph Ellison, Marianne Moore, and Kamau Brathwaite, "The World Arena" documents the surprisingly pervasive genre of "athletic art" across major axes of twentieth-century culture.

    Miles has been working in frosh education for many years, starting when he was a Resident Tutor as a Stanford senior and continuing with his time as a Teaching Fellow for Harvard's "Expos" writing program. From 2016 to 2018, Miles also created and developed "J(oyce)-Term," a one-week winter-break bootcamp on Joyce's "Ulysses" for first-year students. He has extended his teaching to high-school students and lifelong learners online as designer and lead instructor for the "Masterpieces of World Literature" series on edX.

    In his spare time, Miles designs board games, edits home movies, and walks around San Francisco with his dog Pico.
