Hi Everybody! Carnivalesque XVI is up at xoom!. It's an Ancient/Medieval version, and there's lots of fun stuff to read.
Never been to a Carnival??
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 carnival email address (carnivalesque AT-SIGN earlymodernweb DOT org 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 us an email (see further down page for details), noting whether you are particularly interested in early modern or ancient/medieval, and telling us a little about your background and historical interests.
