Mary Ann Eaverly received her A.B. in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology from Bryn Mawr College and her PhD in Classical Art and Archaeology from the University of Michigan and was the Vanderpool Fellow at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. The author of Archaic Greek Equestrian Sculpture (University of Michigan Press 1995) and Tan Men/Pale Women: Color and Gender in Archaic Greece and Egypt, a Comparative Approach (University of Michigan Press 2013), she focuses primarily on issues of iconography in early Greek Art. She is also interested in the use of mythological and archaeological imagery in the work of women poets, especially H.D. and has co-authored several articles on this topic with Marsha Bryant (UF English Dept.), including most recently “Excavating H.D.’s Egypt” in Approaches to Teaching H.D.’s Poetry and Prose (MLA 2011). Her current research project is a study of the iconography of the female nude in Archaic Greek art.

The winner of several University Teaching awards she has taught in UF study-abroad programs in Rome and Paris and has served as Associate Chair and Chair of the Classics Department. She has excavated in Greece, Israel, Cyprus, and Spain and is currently president of the Gainesville society of the Archaeological Institute of America.
