Save Ancient Studies Alliance is planning the second year of our NEW type of conference for ALL Ancient Studies scholars with the following goals:
Present and support excellent scholarship by scholars around the world, who work outside academia, and researchers who have not followed the traditional tenure-track career path.
Foster discussion and action regarding public outreach and scholarly inclusiveness.
Hold a conference freely available to the public.
Continue building a joint community of scholars including both those whose occupations are inside and outside academia.
