4. Keith S. Brown and Yanis Hamilakis (eds), The Usable Past: Greek Metahistories (Lanham, MD: Rowman and Littlefield), 2002
This edited volume brings together papers originally presented to the 1998 conference 'Negotiating Boundaries: The Past and the Present in South Eastern Europe'. Keith Brown and Yannis Hamilakis bring together scholars of history, archaeology, and anthropology to explore how and why history serves as such a key resource for different communities and for the various forms of national imagination in twentieth century Greece . The contributors analyze a range of social phenomena and cultural artifacts, including the experience of exile, ethnic identities, settlement patterns, building styles, school textbooks and postage stamps, to explore the tension between "official" and "unofficial" narratives of the past.
Though focused on the changing historical basis of Greek culture and identity, this work further serves as an important theoretical contemplation of how our view of the past is shaped
by our by our relationship with the present.

Future publications will include the proceedings of the 2001 conference 'Anthropology, Archaeology and Heritage in the Balkans and Anatolia', to be published by Isis Books, Istanbul.
