Share Your Experience of the Ancient World!

Our team of Summer Interns has developed a year-long social media campaign called the "Inspire Campaign" which began on September 1st. The aim of the campaign is to inspire curiosity, engagement, education and enjoyment with and from the Ancient World.

The Ancient World & Me

 

We want to dedicate one day of the week highlighting YOUR stories in a series called “The Ancient World & Me”.

We are looking for personal reflections and stories about how you have interacted with, learned about, been exposed to, or think about the ancient world in your own life. Have you ever visited an archaeological site during a family vacation and learned something you can't forget? Do you have a favorite museum object that you connect to your own life/experience? Has a book, cartoon or movie sparked your interest in the ancient world when you were a kid? We want to hear about it! If you have a picture that you would like to share with this post (for example, your selfie with a museum object, your vacation photo) please upload it below.

We will select our favourite submissions and post them in connection to our weekly themes and topics (we can’t guarantee that your post will be selected, but if it is, we will email you about the date it will be posted). The posts will appear on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter along with your image and social media handle (optional). You will have the full ownership of your image and content. SASA will only post it as part of the social media Inspire campaign.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us: ancientandme@saveancientstudies.org

Scholars & Students of the Ancient World

 
One of these series will be dedicated to highlighting scholars and students working on the ancient world and feature their research to show that people studying the ancient world come from all backgrounds. In line with this goal, we would like to feature videos where students/scholars respond to one or several of the questions below. 

 

  • The video should be 3-5 minutes long (5 minutes maximum).

  • Please send us up to 3 images (images you own or that are public domain) related to your research or things you will be mentioning in the video. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us: ancientandme@saveancientstudies.org
