Calling all bloggers and blog readers…

Every six weeks or so the historical blogosphere hosts a ‘carnival’ where a single blog publishes a ‘Carnivalesque’ miscellany of links to recent posts from around the web. This particular carnival focuses on ancient, medieval and early modern blogging. Previous editions have been hosted by Sharon Howard of Early Modern Notes and Thony C. of The Renaissance Mathematicus.

The many-headed monster will be hosting the next edition on April 27th and we’re looking for nominations. We’ve already had a few come through, but would welcome many more. The Carnivalesque nominations procedure is as follows:

We welcome perspectives from a variety of fields, especially (but not only) history, literary studies, archaeology, art history, or philosophy. You can nominate your own writing and/or that of other bloggers, but please try not to nominate more than 1-2 posts by any author for any single edition of the carnival.

Nominated blogging may be ‘academic’ or ‘popular’, so long as it is based on facts and evidence. Writing that engages with the past to discuss present issues should include significant historical content and analysis, not merely polemic. All nominations are vetted by the host of the edition, whose decision is final.

Nominated posts should have been published within the last 2-3 months. The normal channel is to send an email to the host using the nomination form at this site. Individual hosts may provide additional options. Please ensure you include the full URL of the post you are nominating, and ideally the post title and blog name.
