History Carnival: call for nominations

History Carnival ButtonThe next History Carnival will be hosted on 15 May by Brett at Airminded.

Email nominations for recently published posts about history (a historical topic, reviews of books or resources, reflections on teaching or researching history) using Brett’s contact form, or use the submission form provided by Blog Carnival.

The History Carnival is not just for academics and entries don’t have to be heavyweight scholarship, but they must uphold basic standards of factual accuracy. (If you have any further questions about the criteria for inclusion, check out the Carnival homepage at the 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).

STOP PRESS: URGENTLY WANTED… HOST FOR ANCIENT/MEDIEVAL CARNIVALESQUE (to be held any time that’s convenient for you before the end of May)… Pseudonymous or named bloggers welcome: all you need is some interest in ancient and/or medieval history and blogs of that ilk. We’d particularly welcome someone who hasn’t done it before. Leave a comment or email me (sharon@earlymodernweb.org.uk) ASAP. (Looks like we have a volunteer – more news later!)

UPDATE: Brandon will be hosting the ancient/medieval Carnivalesque at Siris in about a week. More details later, but you can use the Blog Carnival submission form to nominate good posts on ancient and medieval topics posted since the last edition (13 March)…
