History Carnival announcement

History Carnival ButtonThe next History Carnival will be hosted on 15 August by Natalie Bennet at Philobiblon.

Email your nominations for recently published posts (preferably since the last carnival) about history, which can be your own writing or that of other bloggers, to the host: natalieben[at]journ[dot]freeserve[dot]co[dot]uk.

The History Carnival is not just for academics and specialists and entries don’t have to be heavyweight scholarship! But they do have to uphold certain standards of factual accuracy and integrity in the use of sources. They may be focused on a historical topic, reflections on the particular challenges and rewards of studying, researching and teaching history, reviews of history books or web resources, discussions of ‘popular’ histories, etc.

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. (I also recommend that you put “History Carnival” somewhere in the title of the email so that it can be easily picked out amidst all the spam and other stuff that tends to clog up our mailboxes.) You can submit multiple suggestions, both your own writing and that of others, 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).

If you have any further questions about the criteria for inclusion, check out the Carnival homepage (link above).
