The semi-annual scholarly journal Pakistan Journal of Historical Studies (PJHS), published by the Indiana University Press (Bloomington, USA), is seeking papers on the theme “Animals with (or without) Borders” for its summer 2018 issue.

This guest-edited issue explores the interaction between human boundaries and animal lives. As a historical phenomenon, such interaction would include the imposition of borders on existing trade routes and seasonal migration of pastoral societies, and attempts to politically corral animals to fit human boundaries. Socially, it might address problems such as the difference in animal production or welfare on two sides of a border. Politically, it would extend to veterinary, epidemic and tax controls on the movement of animals or animal products, and the role of infrastructure and development capital in the regional development of breeding and production chains. All such interactions are also represented in folktales.

China historian Thomas David DuBois and the journal’s regular editorial team will collaborate to edit this issue.
