Delighted to be hosting the ‘Horses in Culture, Society and Law’ Conference on this website.

Following on from the success of this year’s ‘Horses, Society and the Law: Past, Present and Future’ Conference on 11th April 2017 at De Montfort University, DMU_Welcome Leicester, UK, we’ve decided to make this an annual event.  The name change reflects the inter-disciplinary nature of this conference with papers on anthropology to law to penology being submitted this year.  We are now working on a special issue in a respected academic journal to fully showcase those submissions.

There is a new tab on the menu which will take you to the conference site.  We are excited about this development and look forward to many years of exchanging research ideas across disciplines.
