The Society for Ancient Studies (SAS) — an interdisciplinary graduate student organization at New York University — will host a one day undergraduate conference on the ancient world on Friday, February 8, 2019 at NYU. This conference, organized and moderated by graduate students for talented and advanced undergraduates, will offer participants the opportunity to present their scholarship in the professional setting of an academic conference. 


Interdisciplinary study of the ancient world is an important, integrative, and fruitful approach to understanding past peoples, cultures, and religions. Providing a space for students of ancient texts, material culture, and art to come together and share their ideas will broaden young scholarly horizons and uncover the potential for future interdisciplinary research.
