The Sydney chapter of the AWAWS has organised two events for June, and we would like to extend the invitation to anyone working in Ancient World Studies in Australasia. The first event is a workshop on making research and teaching practices accessible, and the second is a panel discussion on disability in Ancient World Studies, in which we will be joined by five wonderful panelists living with a disability who are researching the ancient world.
