NEW JOURNAL ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR ARTICLES
CHEIRON: THE INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF EQUINE AND EQUESTRIAN HISTORY
We are pleased to present to you our new double-blind peer-reviewed journal edited by Anastasija Ropa and Miriam Bibby, co-published by Trivent Publishing and the Latvian Academy of Sport Education. Cheiron: The International Journal of Equine and Equestrian History is a biannual journal facilitating a debate in equine and equestrian studies across chronological periods and disciplines. The journal welcomes contributions from many fields, including, but not limited to, archaeology, anthropology, social sciences, animal studies, art history, interspecies communication, and veterinary history. Please read the details and full description here.
CALL FOR ARTICLES
Ever since their domestication millenia ago – and probably even before it – horses have played an important role in human society. The relations between the two species were occasionally antagonistic, often exploitative, but also beneficial for both parties.
Documenting and studying the history of their relations, however, is a rather new practice – or so it would seem. The first two issues of Cheiron: The International Journal of Equine and Equestrian History will be dedicated to a critical examination of equine and equestrian history. We invite submissions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including, but not limited to, history, archaeology, anthropology and interspecies communication, targeting all chronological periods from prehistory to contemporary history. Among others, we invite submissions about the contributions made by national schools and scholars to equine and equestrian studies.
We will also consider articles on other issues in equine and equestrian history within the scope of the journal (see the description on the journal webpage here).
The word count for historiographical studies and other full-length articles is 9,000-12,000 words. In addition to articles, the journal publishes shorter, focused notes of 3,000-6,000 words, as well as notes about news and discoveries in the field.
DATES AND DEADLINES. ABSTRACT AND FULL PAPER SUBMISSIONS
If you would like to contribute an article, a note or a news item to the first issue, please contact the journal editors Miriam Bibby (email@example.com) and Anastasija Ropa (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 20 December 2020. For articles, please send a title and abstract of 80-100 words to the editors. For the news section submissions, please send us information about the news item.
Full texts will be due by the end of February 2021, for the first issue of the journal. The publication of the first issue is envisaged for late spring 2021.
