Dr. Meryl Shriver-Rice
Dr. Meryl Shriver-Rice won a fellowship to the American Academy in Rome.

The Community College Humanities Association (CCHA) recently chose MDC Professor Dr. Meryl Shriver-Rice as the winner of its fellowship at the American Academy in Rome, where she is continuing her research on “The Etruscan Table,” a project in which she is examining the “material culture associated with Etruscan food.”

Shriver-Rice, an archaeologist who teaches in the Department of Arts and Philosophy at Wolfson Campus, is also investigating the “botanical, entomological and zooarchaeological evidence for food, feasting and trade in exotic consumables in ancient Etruria amongst the Etruscan city-states, their hinterlands and foreign trade relations.” Looking at the ways in which this research impacts modern society, she aims to bring visibility to issues “of the food-related predicaments we face today, such as food deserts and sustainability.”
