Virtual Conference Announcement and Call for Papers 2022

Save Ancient Studies Alliance (SASA) announces our second annual free public virtual conference, Opening the Ancient World! The conference is for ALL Ancient Studies scholars & anyone interested in the Ancient World. It is scheduled for Sunday August 14th and Monday August 15th, 2022.

Last year’s virtual conference was a smash success, highlighting the scholarship of 19 Independent Scholars and opening Ancient Studies scholarship to an audience of 1,800 participants! This year we are looking at the hot button issue of Who Has the Power?

Leaders and Leadership in the Ancient World. Since we have all experienced the increased attention focused on leadership positions around the world, this conference examines this topic in ancient times to shed light on the present. We are looking for scholars of all backgrounds to contribute papers to this conference and address topics under the theme of leadership in ancient cultures across the globe.

SASA has made it our mission to combat the downward trend of engagement in Ancient Studies by reducing barriers to access the ancient world as often as possible. To this end, we are offering this conference entirely free of charge and are keen to encourage as many independent scholars to contribute their work to this conference as possible. Please share this post, our social media posts, and the linked flyer with your networks so that we can continue to raise awareness of our mission and make Ancient Studies as inclusive as possible.
