Professor Arthur G. Miller is noted for his research and publications on the art and archaeology of Latin America. He has recently been director of archaeological excavations in Oaxaca, Mexico, which have involved the discovery of murals and sculptures from a major eighth-century tomb. He has also been director of the Oaxaca Mural Painting Project, concerned with study of tomb mural paintings in south central Mexico. His recent books include On the Edge of the Sea, Mural Painting at Tancah and Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico and The Mural Painting of Teotihuacan, both published by Dumbarton Oaks. Papers by Professor Miller are to be found in the Actes du XLII Congres International des Americanistes, Estudio de Cultura Maya, the Journal of Field Archaeology and many other serial publications. His major study of pre-Hispanic Oaxaca tombs and mural art, Living with the Dead, has been recently published by the Cambridge University Press. He is presently exploring the process of Spanish colonization through a study of the visual and textual narratives of the Zapotecs, an indigenous group of south central Mexico--a project supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Getty Trust. Professor Miller has been named University of Maryland Distinguished Faculty Research Fellow for 1990-91.
