HLC building

The University of Liverpool Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology invites submissions from undergraduate, postgraduate, and early career researchers for ‘ACE & CREATIVITY’.

This exciting new project embraces the study of the ancient world and creativity, celebrating research, innovation, and public engagement. It encourages an interdisciplinary approach to artmaking and research-led practice, providing an opportunity to inspire and connect the work of emergent researchers. Published monthly on the Department website, ‘ACE & CREATIVITY’ seeks to create a space where different ideas and skills come together in new and impactful ways. It is an invitation to freely explore your artistry, enhance your writing skills and share your research and passion with a broader audience.

We welcome innovative and informative approaches to the ancient world and its reception, with no geographical or chronological limits. We invite original contributions in one (or both!) of the following styles:

  • A piece of creative work. Creativity is personal and everyone has imaginative potential. Any form of innovative expression, from visual arts to creative writing, is welcome. Let your creative sparks fly! Any entry should be accompanied by a concise topic overview of up to 400 words.
  • A blog post. We look for a catchy title, a strong introduction, a well-formed argument, and an effective concluding paragraph. Posts may focus on any aspect of the ancient world and should be grounded in evidence. Harvard in-text citations are preferred, but hyperlinks to useful background material are accepted. Contributions should not exceed 800 words in length, excluding a brief bibliography.

 Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by the editorial team. The approval or rejections of contributions, as well as editorial comments and recommendations, will be communicated to the authors via email. Any form of plagiarism will result in immediate disqualification for publication.

Proposed contributions should be sent by email to:

- Dr. Amanda Potter (

- Dr. Guendalina Daniela Maria Taietti (

- Giulia Tonon (

We are also happy to receive more informal approaches regarding possible submissions and proposals.

We look forward to discovering your creative ideas and research interests!
