Emotions, Humans and Animals

We invite submissions for the second issue of Pakistan Journal of Historical Studies  (Vol. 1, No. 2, July-December 2016), a peer-reviewed, semi-annual research journal published by Indiana University Press (Bloomington, IN, USA). The theme for this issue is “Emotions, Humans and Animals”. We are interested in articles that explore the emotional relationships between humans and animals in any region and period. The issue is concerned with but not limited to the study of emotions reflected in social and cultural construction of animals in human societies; the use of animal signs for characterising human experiences and metaphysical and religious ideas; the association and disassociation of humans with animals in agrarian and industrialised societies; and innovative theoretical and methodological approaches for studying the emotions involved in human-animal relationships. We are also interested in works exploring the post-humanist approaches which historicize the emotional behaviour among animals by moving beyond constructionism.

1 June 2016 is the deadline for submitting research articles, review articles and book reviews.

To submit a manuscript for consideration, an account with the journal is required. Please use the following link for registering an account or log-in to your existing account and then click the ‘new submission’ link:
