Kathleen Smythe is a professor at Xavier University where she addresses questions of contemporary relevance through historical investigation. She prefers bodily-engaged learning and as seen in her most recent book, Bicycling Through Paradise: Historical Rides Around Cincinnati (2021).

She is trained as an African historian with years of fieldwork experience in Tanzania. Africa’s Past, Our Future highlights ideas and institutions in African history that broaden our social, political, and economic imagination. Whole Earth Living: Reconnecting Earth, History, Body and Mind proposes a new sustainability framework based on long-term human interdependencies with the Earth. Kathleen gardens, bikes, walks and hikes anywhere but most often near her home in the Ohio River bioregion near Cincinnati.
