SASA Announces 2023 Reading Groups! Open Call for Group Leaders

Updated: Mar 16, 2023

Save Ancient Studies Alliance (SASA) is delighted to announce we have yet again received two grants to support our free Text-in-Translation Reading Groups program for January 2023 and Summer 2023!

Our January Reading Groups are funded in part by an $800 grant from the Society for Classical Studies as part of their outreach grant program, Ancient Worlds, Modern Communities. Our Summer Reading Groups will be supported in full by a $10,000 grant from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation. These grants will support a full slate of exciting Reading Groups, as we seek to attract excellent young scholars to lead the discussion groups and to expand to new topics and a variety of areas of the Ancient World, and to provide groups in multiple languages. Groups are free and open to all, and we have seen our past groups welcome a wide range of participants in age, background, and nationality.

On this exciting note, we would like to extend a Call for Reading Group Leaders! SASA seeks 15 Ancient Studies PhD Students or Early Career Scholars for the paid role of Reading Group Leader for our Summer 2023 Mini-Reading Groups. SASA’s Text-in-Translation Reading Groups are small, informal discussion groups, centered on ancient texts that the Group Leaders will choose and prepare a curriculum for. At the weekly sessions, the Group Leader will lead and expand upon discussions, giving both leaders and participants a chance to consider ancient topics in a casual and explorative manner. Feedback from our Reading Groups last January and the past two summers was incredible, as both participants and Group Leaders loved the experience. Follow this link to apply and for more information. Please note the deadline to apply is April 7, 2023.

Please be on the lookout for the schedules of the January Reading Groups soon and of the Summer Reading Groups this spring. For now, check out our other free Live Events at
