Opening the Ancient World
A Free Public Virtual Conference

Discovery, Science, and Technology in the Ancient World -
Traditions and Innovations
Sunday - Monday, July 23rd - 24th, 2023

Save Ancient Studies Alliance presents our third annual conference, a new type of online
conference for ALL Ancient Studies scholars & anyone interested in the Ancient World. Our
goals are:

1. to hold an academic Ancient Studies conference freely available to the public,
2. to foster discussion and action regarding public outreach and scholarly inclusiveness,
3. to present and support excellent scholarship by independent scholars around the world,
in order to continue building a joint community of scholars including both those whose
occupations are inside and outside academia.

We aim to bring together scholars who do not normally have the opportunity to present and
engage with scholarship, including:

● those who completed a PhD and are now professionals in other fields,
● those who left PhD programs, or have had to take time out of their studies,
● contingent faculty,
● academics from marginalized groups,
● teachers, professors, and staff from K-12 schools and community colleges
● public humanities institutions,
● cultural resource management professionals, and
● independent scholars.

Abstract Submission Deadline is March 31st. Submit using this form.
