Carnival Calls

Carnival(esque) calls

Brett at Airminded will be hosting the next History Carnival on May 15th. Please e-mail nominations for recently published posts about history (a historical topic, reviews of books or resources,
reflections on teaching or researching history) using Brett's contact form, or use the submission form provided by Blog Carnival.

The History Carnival is not just for academics and entries don't have to be heavyweight scholarship, but they must uphold basic standards of factual accuracy. (If you have any further questions about the criteria for inclusion, check out the Carnival homepage at the link above).

Nominations should include: the title and permalink URL of the blog post you wish to nominate and the author's name (or pseudonym) and the title of the blog. (I also recommend that you put "History Carnival"; somewhere in the title of the email.) You can submit multiple suggestions, both your own writing and that of others, but please try not to submit more than one post by any individual author for each Carnival (with the exception of multi-part posts on the same topic).

STOP PRESS: URGENTLY WANTED: HOST FOR ANCIENT/MEDIEVAL CARNIVALESQUE (to be held any time that's convenient for you before the end of May). Pseudonymous or named bloggers welcome: all you need is some interest in ancient and/or medieval history and blogs of that ilk. We'd particularly welcome someone who hasn't done it before (Mike Drout? Scott Nokes? Tony Keen? Steve Muhlberger? Heo Cwaeth?)

Leave a comment here or for Sharon here, or email Sharon AT earlymodernweb DOT org DOT uk.

Sorry, Sharon, for nicking your text ... The Kazoo blogging took way too much time!

Can't volunteer for a Carnivalesque this time around, but will consider it in the future.

Steve, thanks.

We have a volunteer for this one - more news to come, but it'll probably be around the 21st. But it'll still need hosts in the future - the next Ancient/Medieval edition will be in July (and the next Early Modern in need of a host will be August).

I'd like to try doing it some time in the future, too, but personal commitments prevent me from doing it in May.
