History Carnival

History Carnival ButtonThe next History Carnival will be hosted on 15 September by Orac at Respectful Insolence.

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 at his new gmail address (rather than the one given on an earlier announcement): oracknows[AT]gmail.com by 9pm EDST on Wednesday 14 September.

The History Carnival is not just for academics and specialists and entries certainly don’t have to be heavyweight scholarship, but they should uphold certain standards of factual accuracy and integrity in the use of sources. They may be focused on a particular 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. But please do not nominate posts about current events unless they contain some significant historical perspective. If you have any further questions about the criteria for inclusion, check out the Carnival homepage (link above).

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.) 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).

PS: I’m increasingly fed up with Blogger, so the History Carnival homepage is on the move to http://historycarnival.blogsome.com. You will still be able to get some information at the blogspot page for a while, but it will no longer be updated.
