Mary Miller, a member of the Yale University faculty since 1981, is Sterling Professor of History of Art and the dean of Yale College. Miller earned her A.B. from Princeton in 1975 and her Ph.D. from Yale in 1981. Specializing in the art of the ancient New World, Millers work addresses questions of Aztec and Maya art, as well as the historiography of pre-Columbian art. She is completing the work of her archaeological project to document and reconstruct the Maya wall paintings at Bonampak, Mexico. For her work on the Maya, Miller has won national recognition including a Guggenheim Fellowship, and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1994. She has been chosen to deliver the two most prestigious lecture series in her discipline: the A. W. Mellon Lectures, Art and Representation in the Ancient New World, at the National Gallery of Art in April-May, 2010, and the Slade Lectures at Cambridge University in 2014-2015.
