Miriam Clinton

Assistant Professor of Art and Art History

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 has served 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. Her research currently focuses on 3D modeling of Minoan (and other ancient) buildings for online and scholarly use as tools to study the ancient use of architecture. Her online game, a part of her current book preparation, is available at rhytahouse.com - it is based on a 3D model of the House of the Rhyta on Pseira, off the coast of Crete, a house used in approximately 1450 BCE. 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. She often brings students to Greece to do archaeological fieldwork with her during the summers.
