A three-day conference bringing equine history to the public will come to Pomona, CA on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, and Dec. 2, 2018. Events will showcase the influence of equine animals in human history, including the introduction of horses, their assimilation into indigenous and colonial societies, the presence of ranches in California, and how human beings and horses have shaped the environment. A keynote address on Nov. 30 at 5pm will feature Dr. Richard Nash (Professor of English at the University of Indiana, Bloomington), who is a leading scholar of Human-Animal Studies and eighteenth century English culture. Twenty-four public historians and archivists coming from all over the US and internationally will contribute to themed panels held at the W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library (University Library Building, 3801 West Temple Ave Pomona, CA 91768). A tour of the WKKAHL will showcase its collections and current exhibit to promote the rich resources available for the study of Arabian horses at Cal Poly Pomona. The conference will close with a Q&A session and the traditional Arabian Sunday Show at the W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center (3801 West Temple Avenue, Pomona, CA 91768). Space is limited, but interested public will be able to attend by registering for tickets on the Equine History Collective website.
