Panagiota A. Pantou

Panagiota A. Pantou is currently completing her doctorate at the State University of New York at Buffalo. In her dissertation, she examines the role of nonpalatial architecture in the formation of Mycenaean social identities and the creation of power. Her research interests include the emergence of complexity in Aegean societies, the process of Mycenaean state formation, Late Bronze Age architecture, and prehistoric Thessaly. She was a member of the Greek Archaeological Service in Volos (1996-2003), a fellow of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (2007-2009), and has worked for several archaeological, ethnographical, and survey projects on Crete.
