   The Equine History Collective is looking for a social media liaison to assist with Twitter, Instagram, and EquineHistory.org. Social media experience is a must, experience with wordpress.com and wordpress.org a plus. This is a chance to be involved in the growing field of equine history, and interact with both scholars and the public. You do not need to be an equine historian to apply, but some familiarity with equine history is needed.  

   Duties would include coordinating with potential writers for blogposts, and editing and sharing engaging content across platforms, including EquineHistory.org, Twitter, and Instagram. Our goal is to promote community, share exciting research trends, and curate news of interest to EHC members and equine history fans.

   This is a volunteer position, and as such includes some flexibility, but communication with the EHC board is critical.

For more information, email EquineHistory@gmail.com

Call for Papers! Equine History Conference

IMG_0027   The Equine History Collective (EHC) invites submissions for individual presentations for its first annual conference, to take place Nov. 30 – Dec. 1 at Cal Poly Pomona, in partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library. Submissions may investigate any equine in the past,kellogg including donkeys, mules, zebras and onagers. The theme of the conference is “Why Equine History Matters,” meant to show the relevance of equine history for historical studies. We therefore encourage papers that illustrate how any facet of equine history, broadly or narrowly conceived, helps to illuminate, interpret, and contextualize the past. The conference will conclude with a visit to the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center’s Sunday Show.

lutely.jpg   The EHC’s purpose is to foster equine history research and its dissemination, and promote collaboration between equine historians in all disciplines. As such, we encourage submissions from anyone who researches equine history. This includes, but is not limited to, scholars in other disciplines other than history, like agriculture, archaeology, art history, and literature, and researchers in non-academic settings, such as public historians and independent scholars. Submissions from scholars at any career stage are welcome. Please understand that space may be limited for this inaugural conference, but we expect the number of presentation spots available to grow in future years.IMG_1859

   The deadline for submission is 15 April 2018. Please send abstracts (250 words or less) and a one-page CV to equinehistory@gmail.com. The Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals of its decision by the end of May. Travel funds may be available for speakers.  Questions? Contact us.
