Hosting a Carnival

The History Carnival is on the look out for hosts! If you've enjoyed reading the Carnivals, why not take a turn at hosting and help to keep them running?

To host, you must have your own blog, and you should have some familiarity with history blogs and with historical research. Hosts certainly do not have to be academic historians, and pseudonymous bloggers are very welcome.

NB: spamblogs and plagiarists are not welcome.

Hosting requires a few hours' work, sifting through nominations and compiling the carnival. (Imaginative themes are always welcomed but not compulsory.)

Carnival Nominations

History is a diverse field, and we welcome suitable nominations from anyone with something interesting to say about history, 'academic' or 'popular' - specialist topics, research, teaching, sources, debates and controversies, etc - so long as it is non-fiction, evidence-based and not plagiarised.

Posts consisting merely of links or quotes from other blogs may be considered but more substantive writing is preferred. Writing that engages with the past to discuss present issues should include significant historical content and analysis.

All nominations are vetted by the host of the edition, whose decision is final.
 

How to submit nominations

The Carnival's focus is on recent blogging - normally, since the latest edition. Slightly older posts may be considered if they were overlooked then.

The usual channel is to use the simple 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.
