Call for Papers – Animal History (Inaugural Volume)

The editors of Animal History invite article submissions for its inaugural volume, to be published in 2025.

Animal History is a new, peer-reviewed journal for histories of animals and human-animal relationships. The journal seeks to cultivate and publish cutting-edge historical research and to redress a long-standing gap in historical scholarship, which has traditionally focused on creating a record of human agency narrated through human-centered assumptions. Instead, Animal History seeks research documenting both the impact that humans have had on animals and the impact that animals have had on human histories, cultures, languages, technologies, environments, and lives.

Submissions must be submitted via our manuscript system and should be no more than 9,100 words, including all references. However, we strongly prefer manuscripts of 8,000 words or less. Please also provide a summary of no more than 150 words, plus a list of four or five key words.
