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.
