Carnival Calls

Carnival Calls

Hey, did you know that Carnivalesque Button is still going strong?? I've just been a mess about posting anything useful of late. But the latest Early Modern edition, Carnivalesque 16, is up here at Virtual Stoa!

Still looking for a host for the July version -- Ancient and Medieval. Interested in Hosting? It's fun and not all that difficult.

Carnivalesque is certainly not just for historians (or for academic scholars). We welcome perspectives from related disciplines, especially literary studies, archaeology, art history, philosophy - in fact, from anyone who enjoys writing about anything to do with the not-so-recent past. You can nominate your own writing and/or that of other bloggers, but please try not to nominate more than one or two posts by any author, and limit nominations to fairly recent posts, preferably since the last edition (on the relevant period) and certainly within the last three months.

To submit nominations you can either send an email to the upcoming host (once a name has been announced), to the carnivalesque e-mail address: carnivalesque At-sign
earlymodernweb DOT org ANOTHER DOT uk or you can use the handy submission form at Blog Carnival.

Potential hosts should be regular bloggers with some knowledge of
and interest in pre-modern history (though, again, not necessarily academics). If you are interested in hosting an edition of Carnivalesque, please send an email noting whether you are particularly interested in early modern or ancient/medieval, and telling us a little about your background and historical interests.

Update: Meg at xoom has graciously agreed to host the July Ancient/Medieval Carnivalesque on or about 25 July. You can forward submissions to the above addresses, or to meg AT rageaway DOT com.

The next History Carnival will be at Chapati Mystery on July 1. Email Sepoy at sepoyATchapatimysteryDOTcom with submittals. Or you can use this handy form.
