Countdown to Carnivals

1. I am hosting the next History Carnival at Cliopatria on Wednesday 1 June!

Email your nominations – your own blogwriting or that of other bloggers to me: sharon AT earlymodernweb DOT org DOT uk (replace AT with @, DOT with . and close up the spaces), by the end of Tuesday.

Remember, the History Carnival isn’t just intended for academics; entries don’t have to be particularly weighty or scholarly. But I do expect a focus on things historical and reasonable standards of accuracy and fairness in the use of historical sources. If you’re uncertain, check out the carnival’s homepage at the link above. And NB that the host’s decision is final.

You should include in your email: 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.

You can submit multiple suggestions, 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). (Unless you really can’t bear to choose.) You can submit your own work as well as that of other bloggers.

The posts should have been published recently, certainly within the previous month, and preferably since the date of the last Carnival (15 May).


2. You may also be interested in the Carnival of Bad History, which will be at Science and Politics on 31 May.

Have you seen lately an egregious example of miunderstanding or misuse of history? Was history botched in a movie or TV show you just saw? Was a book or article trying to rewrite history for artistic or political purposes? Does watching History Channel drive you crazy?

You have until 30 May to send submissions to: *coturnix1 AT aol DOT com* or *badhistory AT aol DOT com*.


And please pass on the word!

  1. Is it all right if I create my own bad history, specifically for carnival purposes?

    You’re more than welcome to write something specially with either of the Carnivals in mind.
