The 2019 CFP was:

The Equine History Collective (EHC) invites submissions for individual presentations for its second annual conference, to take place Nov. 13-15, 2019 at Cal Poly Pomona, in partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library. Submissions may investigate any equine in the past, including donkeys, mules, zebras and onagers. The theme of the conference is “Embodied Equines,” inviting papers that explore both how people have understood, shaped, sustained, and used equine bodies, and tried to capture and understand equine experiences. For instance: How do perceptions of an equine’s body influence its value, and the work to which it is put? What is the relationship between an equine’s body and its broader environment? How have people interpreted the relationship between equine behavior, emotion, and thought? Topics might include training, feeding, veterinary care, production, disposal, or behavior.

     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. Check here for a look at last year’s fabulous gathering.

    The deadline for submission is Friday, April 19, 2019. For individual submissions, please send abstracts (250 words or less) and a one-page CV to equinehistory@gmail.com. For panel submissions, please send a single proposal which includes: panelists names and C.V.s, chair name, panel abstract (150 words or less), and individual abstracts (200 words or less each). The Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals of its decision by the end of May.

    Any questions may be directed to equinehistory@gmail.com. For further information about the Equine History Collective, please visit EquineHistory.org.
