Launched in 2019, the Assyrian Studies Association (ASA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes the academic study of the Assyrian heritage through supporting research, teaching, and intellectual collaboration among scholars in fields that include history, archaeology, cultural heritage, religion, language, literary studies, social sciences, arts, architecture, and law, among others. Thus, by bridging fields that have traditionally dabbled in Assyrian subjects from the ancient to the modern world, ASA aims to highlight work on Assyrians in these fields and beyond, bringing them into dialogue with each other in order to illustrate a vibrant, robust, and authentic experience of Assyro-Mesopotamian heritage. ASA builds connections between  academic institutions and scholars to strengthen the academic study of this venerable culture throughout North America and the world.
