Hi all! The latest Carnivalesque is up at Kaye Jones' blog. It's filed with lots of stuff you might have missed over the last couple of months, so go and check it out!
And if your tastes run more to the Early Modern, the next edition will be held at Airs, Waters, Places on January 24th. Please send suggestions for inclusion to airs waters places at gmail dot com (no spaces, obvs).
Carnivalesque is certainly not just for academics. We welcome perspectives from a variety of fields, especially history, 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 for any single edition of Carnivalesque, and limit nominations to recent posts.
Would you like to host an edition?
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.
