    The Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture (housed at the University of Wales Trinity St David) has just rebranded themselves and widened their scope to the Sophia Project. In its original incarnation, the Sophia Project was designed as an effort to bring the study of astrology to academia. A number of groups were involved at the outset, but the Sophia Centre in Wales is the only one remaining under that aegis.

    My work with the Sophia Project revolves around their publishing efforts. If you are working on articles related to astrology, the peer-reviewed academic journal Culture and Cosmos is always soliciting quality material (at around 8,000 words per article). The Sophia Centre Press publishes two major series at the moment: Studies in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology and Sophia Centre Master Monographs. The first is either conference proceedings or longer monographs by a single author. The second is a brand new series of small monographs based on high quality masters thesis work in topics related to cultural astronomy and astrology, edited and curated by yours truly.

    If you are not already familiar with the work of the Sophia Project, take a moment to get to know them. They are a vibrant community of researchers doing some fascinating work in our field.
