This volume represents a pioneering examination of the nature and identities of Aegean prehistory as a discipline. Emerging from a workshop that generated lively debate among a wide cross-section of scholars, it offers one of the first published attempts to situate Aegean prehistory within a modern self-critical and reflexive context. The chapters and commentaries together yield a multidisciplinary discourse, covering such topics as the current health and academic status of the field, the political and social parameters of the discipline, the relationship between Aegean prehistory and Hellenism, and the discovery of the "Aegean" by Greek modernists. Contents: Reflections on the "Aegean" and its Prehistory: Present Routes and Future Destinations; "Just the Facts Ma'am": Surveying Aegean Prehistory's State of Health; A Profile of Aegean Prehistorians in the 1990s; The Landscapes of Modern Greek Aegean Archaeology; Embedding Aegean Prehistory in Institutional Practice: A View from One of its North American Centers; The Aegean Prehistorian's Role in Classical Studies Today; Greek Modernists' Discovery of the Aegean, or How the Aegean Came to Occupy Greece's Center; Round a Bigger Pond; On Our Political Relevance?; Whither Aegean Prehistory?
