Microgrant Opportunities

  • The Sportula: Microgrants for Classics Students

    • The Sportula is a group of Classics Graduate Students and Junior Faculty committed to making sure that students from working-class and historically looted communities (like the ones we ourselves come from) don’t fall through the cracks left by traditional scholarship programs; all too many of which have a poor understanding of what our lives are actually like and what we actually need.

  • Black Trowel Collective Microgrants

    • Black Trowel is a collective of archaeologists committed to the active support of archaeology students from working-class and historically looted communities who are both regularly excluded by traditional scholarship and academic programs, or who require more economic support than those resources cover.

Caucuses for Underrepresented Persons in Classics

  • Mountaintop Coalition

    • The Mountaintop Coalition was founded in 2018. It is composed of students and scholars of the ancient Mediterranean world and its reception (broadly defined) with a shared interest in advancing the professional goals of Classicists who identify as members of ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in the field. Such interests will include scholarly approaches to the study of race and ethnicity in antiquity, but the group’s activities will focus on practical issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in professional settings.

  • Asian and Asian American Classical Caucus

    • The Asian and Asian American Classical Caucus is a professional organization that fosters the interests of students and scholars of classical antiquity who identify as Asian and Asian American by

      1. promoting scholarship that explores issues of classical reception in Asian and Asian American culture; and

      2. striving to bring together the vibrant community of Asian and Asian American classicists.

  • The Women's Classical Caucus

    • Founded in 1972, the mission of the WCC is to promote gender-informed perspectives in the study and teaching of all aspects of ancient Mediterranean cultures, particularly in the study of women, gender, and intersectionality in classical antiquity. [Description from]

  • Lambda Caucus

    • The Lambda Classical Caucus is a coalition of queer Classicists--including, but not limited to, lesbians, bisexuals, gay men, and transgendered people--and their friends and supporters. It was founded in 1989 as the Lesbian and Gay Classical Caucus. Although Lambda is a group affiliated with the Society for Classical Studies (previously the American Philological Association), LCC members need not belong to the SCS. [Description from]
  • Trans in Classics

    • This group is for trans and non-binary folx and their friends to meet and discuss trans-issues in Classical Studies, to provide resources to benefit and broaden our academic community and to improve scholarship touching on trans-identities or readings.
      The eventual goal is to create a community that can advocate for trans folx, combat instances of transphobia within academia, provide resources to educate the broader Classics community, and help promote and produce scholarship that discusses trans-identities, issues, and readings well.

  • Crip Antiquity

    • CripAntiquity is an international advocacy organization for disabled and neurodivergent students, teachers, scholars, staff, artists, and writers in ancient studies. Our mission is to combat ableism by amplifying disabled and neurodivergent perspectives; creating resources that will empower individuals and transform institutions; and fostering community among our members.

Scholarly Interest Groups

  • Hesperides: Classics in the Luso-Hispanic World

    • Eschewing the fixed boundaries of disciplinary distinctions, periodization, and international borders, we hold within our purview any scholarship that examines the diverse manifestations of Greco-Roman engagements across and between Iberian contact zones: the Mediterranean, the Americas, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and beyond. Additionally, the organization welcomes scholarship highlighting the contributions of those who have been overlooked in previous scholarship, such as indigenous, Afrodescendent, and female voices. [Description from]
  • Eos: Africana Receptions of Ancient Greece and Rome

    • Eos exists to create a supportive, dedicated community for studying Africana receptions of ancient Greece & Rome and to foster collaborative research and pedagogy between Classics and other disciplines. Our membership consists of students, scholars, teachers, and members of the public who are interested in receptions of ancient Greece and Rome by Black peoples across the African diaspora and the African continent.
