Carnivalesque XVIII Host Sought
It's getting to be that time, and we are still looking for volunteers to host August's Carnivalesque -- an Early Modern edition.
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.
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 comment below or send an e-mail to Another_damned_medievalist AT-SIGN hotmail DOT com, noting whether you are particularly interested in early modern or ancient/medieval, and telling us a little about your background and historical interests.
