I am pleased to announce that I will be playing host to the 47th -- this one on ancient/medieval themes** -- right here, next month. Carnivalesque, for those of you who don't know it, is a blog carnival dedicated to showcasing outstanding recent posts in premodern history.
But blog carnivals are not spectator sports! So, send me your suggestions for noteworthy posts. Nominate anything posted since the most recent ancient/medieval carnival (November 23rd) up until around February 15th (You can either suggest them in the comments for this post, or e-mail me directly at notoriousphd ~at~ mac ~dot~ com). Also, please link to this announcement from your own blogs.
What kinds of blogs/posts should be nominated? I think the Carnivalesque boilerplate says it best:
"Carnivalesque is certainly not just for academics. We welcome perspectives from a variety of fields, especially history, literary studies, archaeology, art history, philosophy - in fact, from anyone who enjoys writing about anything to do with the not-so-recent past. You can nominate your own writing and/or that of other bloggers, but please try not to nominate more than one or two posts by any author for any single edition of Carnivalesque, and limit nominations to recent posts."
Selections will be based on interest of subject matter, wit, and whatever strikes your genial hostess as kinda nifty when she reads it. Selections will also be subjective. Appeals may be submitted in writing to the proper authorities.
But there's room for all under the Carnivalesque tent, so send those posts in!
**For early modernists, Carnivalesque 46 will be an early modern one, and will be posted at Chronologi Cogitationes in late January.
