Instruction to contributors

Culture and Cosmos welcomes submissions on any aspect of the history of astrology (the practice of relating the heavenly bodies and celestial phenomena to lives and events on earth) or cultural astronomy (the relationship between astronomy and human thought and society). We also include Archaeoastronomy (the study of the relationship between the sky, archaeological remains and artefacts in their environmental and cultural contexts) and Ethnoastronomy (the study of the relationship between the sky and social and cultural institutions). Suitable topics therefore include any aspect of astronomy or astrology and the arts, politics, religion and society, and approaches may be historical, anthropological, sociological or philosophical.
