Miriam G. Clinton is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Rhodes College. She focuses on the art and archaeology of the ancient world, especially Bronze Age Greece. She has extensive fieldwork experience on excavations in both Greece and Italy and serves as an architectural and digital archaeology specialist for projects associated with the Institute for Aegean Prehistory’s Study Center for East Crete. She earned her BA from Yale University in Classics and Archaeological Studies and both her MA and PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World. She has been awarded numerous grants and fellowships from the Fulbright Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, Stavros S. Niarchos Foundation, the Betancourt Grant, and others. She is focusing on two lines of scholarship at the moment, one involving 3D modeling of Minoan buildings for online and scholarly use and the other related to the movements of peoples through the landscape of Crete in the time of Homer. Her publications have appeared in journals such as the Journal of Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology and Heritage Studies and Aegean Archaeology and in books published by the Archaeological Institute of America. Professor Clinton is a bassoon, cat, and sci-fi/fantasy fan. She plans to bring students to Greece to do archaeological fieldwork with her during the summers.
