Culture & Cosmos: Journal for the History of Astrology and Cultural Astronomy


Culture & Cosmos is a peer-reviewed academic journal published on the history of astrology and cultural astronomy. It welcomes submissions containing original research on a wide range of topics.

Culture & Cosmos is published in association with the Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture, School of Archaeology, History and Anthropology, University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

It 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).

It also includes archaeoastronomy (the study of the relationship between the sky, archaeological remains and artifacts 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.
