Proposals due February 20 for SAGE Business Cases (SBC) new Ancient Leadership series. This year’s series will explore ideas and examples of “leading across boundaries” through history, mythology, philosophy, and material culture.

This is a great opportunity for advanced graduate students especially. 

Proposed cases may address current conversations related to the idea of “leading across boundaries,” both physical and philosophical. Authors may wish to consider discussions of citizenship, globalization, migration, transgression, and liminality. What lessons might these examples pass onto a modern audience, and what does it really mean to lead across these boundaries? For additional topics that may be treated in these cases, see the full SBC call for submissions here.

We are interested in sources from the diverse cultures of the ancient Mediterranean basin, not merely limited to Greece and Rome, but also Persia, Phoenicia, Lydia, Egypt, Etruria, etc., as well as global antiquity, India, China, Africa, Americas, etc. For a sample case from our past  “Becoming a Leader” series, see here.

Case proposals can be submitted via this form. Each submission will consist of a case abstract and a set of proposed learning outcomes. The abstract (no more than 200 words) should provide a succinct overview of your case, giving SBC users a quick snapshot to assess your case’s relevance to their classroom or research needs. The learning outcomes should enumerate the specific learning goals of the case, highlighting what students will take away from the case and emphasizing the key lessons the material intends to impart. The learning outcomes should be formatted as a bulleted list, with no more than six individual learning outcomes.
