New Open Access Journal: Ancient Studies Annual


Ancient Studies Annual (ASA) is an interdisciplinary journal, featuring original articles from graduate students, and peer-reviewed by PhD candidates and scholars from around the globe. The journal is hosted by the Department of Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies at the University of British Columbia. Annually, ASA publishes its open-access issue concerning a theme of the ancient world that ties together the research articles within a volume accessible to a wider audience. ASA encourages graduate students researching the history, archaeology, literature, religion, art, philosophy, and other areas of the ancient world to submit an article concerning the journal’s annual theme. ASA is committed to supporting a range of topics and perspectives in modern scholarship, especially welcoming submissions from historically underrepresented voices, in an effort to reflect the diversity and dynamism of the ancient world.

Call for Papers 2023

The theme of the upcoming volume is “Order and Chaos”. Across various disciplines examining the ancient world, numerous methodological perspectives have been developed with the purpose of making sense of the ancient world by ‘ordering’ the chaotic mass of evidence that has been preserved to us. Analyses of papyri, art, epigraphic evidence, literary and legal sources, architecture, and various types of archaeological evidence have enabled a greater understanding of urban planning, the economy, artistic trends, family life, social and political structures, as well as other important spheres of the ancient world in times of both peace and war. We invite current graduate students completing research related to these aspects of order and chaos within the ancient world to submit an article for publication in the upcoming volume of Ancient Studies Annual

In order to submit an article to Ancient Studies Annual for consideration, please send a draft of the article to with the words “Manuscript Draft” in the subject line. Articles should be between 5000–8000 words (including footnotes but excluding bibliography) and be formatted according to Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition).

Accepted papers will be published in an open-access, online journal accessed via the University of British Columbia’s library.
