Prepare to get nothing done this weekend…
Email nominations for recently published posts about history (a historical topic, reviews of books or resources, reflections on teaching or researching history) to rgoetz AT fas DOT harvard DOT edu, or use the submission form provided by Blog Carnival. Rebecca is particularly interested in posts on the history of taxes and taxation.
This is an interdisciplinary carnival for the best blog writing on history, literature, art, religion, philosophy, etc, of the early modern period (c.1500-1800CE): send nominations for posts written in the last couple of months to: kristine DOT steenbergh AT let DOT uu DOT nl or use the Blog Carnival submission form.
IMPORTANT PS: Forgot the bit where I ask for volunteer hosts.
I keep reading how much people enjoy reading the end results, but right now hardly anyone is prepared to put in the effort to make them happen, unless I go round begging and/or twisting virtual elbows and I’m getting fed up of doing that. Bottom line: no hosts means no Carnivals, because I’m certainly not going to start doing it every few weeks. It’s up to you lot. [If you have hosted any of the carnivals in the last year or so this rant does not apply to you.]
History Carnival needs hosts from 1 June onwards. Carnivalesque is also looking for hosts for the next ancient/medieval issue in May (unless my partner-in-crime knows something I don’t)
and the next early modern issue in June. If you’re interested, you can visit the carnivals’ webpages to find out more, and to get contact details. Or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
