Save Ancient Studies Alliance (SASA) along with

Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) and Society for Classical Studies (SCS)

have created a new formal network of academic organizations involved in

any field of Ancient Studies,

the Coalition of Ancient Studies Organizations (CASO).

Projects

CASO Goals

  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 urge other learned societies whose areas of study include the ancient past to join CASO.
