Dr. Jerolyn E. Morrison is a Minoan archaeologist, art historian, and potter with a passion for cooking in ceramic pots. She teaches ARTH 1300 Introduction to Art, Survey of Western Art I and II (ARTH 2302 and ARTH 2303), and upper-level art history classes. These upper-level art history courses examine the material culture and art of the Minoan people. Dr. Morrison is a U.S. Fulbright Student Recipient 2006–2007 and founder of Minoan Tastes, a social-minded enterprise in Greece that promotes the culinary history of the Aegean by working with a network of food and craft experts and scholars. Since 1997, she has participated as a Minoan ceramics expert in Crete and Kos on archaeological projects under the auspices of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, the British School at Athens, Scuola Italiana Statale di Atene, and the Greek Ministry of Culture. Before returning to Baylor (Dr. Morrison has an undergraduate degree from our department), she lived most of the year in Crete.
