SSC Clary Theatre, Georgia Tech
Title: “Pre-historic Greece” at trowel’s edge: Interrogating old stories about origins, margins, and ruthless barbarians.
lecture focuses on what is often called “Pre-historic Greece”.
The very term “pre-historic” has been severely questioned today.
Is history the sole privilege of those people who kept written
records of their lives that we
can access, retrieve, or decipher today? Archaeological research
affords significant insights into the histories of peoples once
considered “without history” or “pre-“ historic; into the
richness of their cultural traditions and the complexity of their
lived experiences. Within the borders of what is Modern Greece,
communities existed for thousands of years. Interestingly, a mere
handful of these have entered our history books and our national
imagination as worthy precursors to later glorified historical
periods; some are even considered “civilizations”. What renders
them so unique and special? The lecture considers examples from the
entire span of “Greek prehistory” tracing how contemporary
identity politics and other kinds of political aspirations together
with well established traditions of approaching the past, such as
Hellenism, may determine interpretations of the past in the present.
