The image of the Pegasus constellation is derived from a map by the International Astronomical Union / Sky & Telescope Magazine, available on Wikipedia
The constellation, Pegasus, located in the Northern sky, is named after the winged horse of Greek mythology. The star, Epsilon Pegasi, also known as Enif, marks the horse's muzzle. The brightest star, it is an orange supergiant that is 12 times larger than the Sun, and around 690 light-years distant from Earth.
Pegasus, the SASAH yearbook, arises at a time of deep uncertainty, with the world taking shelter from a pandemic. In it you will find creative humanities projects, poetic and social speculations, essays, instruments dedicated to social transformation, and other wonders.
Dear reader-viewer: you probably recall that when you are prompted to imagine or remember something, you often cast your eyes upwards first. Pegasus is prompting you to look directly forwards and into your screen – before you let your eyes turn towards the sky.
Western University is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak and Attawandaron peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum. This land continues to be home to diverse Indigenous peoples whom we recognize as contemporary stewards of the land and vital contributors of our society.
