"Why Equine History Matters"--The Equine History Conference(2018-10-24)

The Equine History Conference, "Why Equine History Matters"
W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library, Cal Poly Pomona
Nov. 30-Dec. 2, 2018

The horse cuts across wide swathes of society, in diverse cultures, regions, and times; this event brings together scholars, public historians, and archivists to discuss “Why Equine History Matters.” This conference was the brain-child of the Equine History Collective (EHC), a recently incorporated federal 501(c)3 public charity, with the enthusiastic support and sponsorship of the W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California. We are especially glad to be in Pomona–an important center for Arabian horse breeding--to promote the exchange of exciting equine research between the academic community, equine professionals, and the public. On these grounds, the breakfast cereal mogul W. K. Kellogg bred Arabian horses imported from England, and became a popular ambassador to the early Hollywood entertainment industry. A campaign to preserve the Arabian breeding center and restore its public educational purpose led to the development of the first southern California agricultural science program in the Cal State University system in the Kellogg Arabian Center.

Join us for an exciting series of new research presentations, a plenary lecture by Dr. Richard Nash (Professor of English, University of Indiana, Bloomington), a tour of the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library, and a Sunday Show at the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center!
