The Pakistan Journal of Historical Studies invites submissions for its second issue (volume 1, number 2, July–December 2016) which has as its theme, "Emotions, Humans and Animals."
Sponsored by the Khaldunia Centre for Historical Research in Lahore, Pakistan and published semiannually by Indiana University Press, the Pakistan Journal of Historical Studies is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal that aims to develop critical ideas on less explored and innovative themes in social, cultural, art, architectural, political, and economic histories. For this special issue, the editors 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 characterizing human experiences and metaphysical and religious ideas;
- the association and disassociation of humans with animals in agrarian and industrialized societies; and
- innovative theoretical and methodological approaches for studying the emotions involved in human-animal relationships.
The editors also interested in works exploring the post-humanist approaches which historicize the emotional behaviour among animals by moving beyond constructionism.
