What is SASA?

Meet Our Public Scholar: Dr. Kara Cooney

I am interested in making the past relevant to today because, otherwise, why are we studying the past at all? I am also interested in recognizing entrenched power inequities in the ancient world and in the modern disciplines that study antiquity. Antiquity studies have been white facing for too long; we need to broaden our interests into other parts of the ancient world. SASA is working to achieve those goals, and I’m thrilled to be on board.
