 The goals of this Coalition are:

 

  1. To bring together our organizations and their memberships and constituencies to work together on projects promoting public outreach, advocacy, and greater access to Ancient Studies.

  2. To create a broader platform for our fields in order to engage with national humanities advocacy organizations and further the cause of Ancient Studies within the Humanities.

 

We welcome other learned societies whose areas of study at least partially overlap with the ancient past to join CASO.
