Hosting a Carnival

The carnival is not currently active and is not looking for hosts.

Carnivalesque is deeply grateful to all those who have hosted in the past and helped to keep the carnival running

Carnival Nominations

Nominations are now closed.

We welcome perspectives from a variety of fields, especially (but not only) history, literary studies, archaeology, art history, or philosophy. 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 Writing that engages with the past to discuss present issues should include significant historical content and analysis, not merely polemic.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.
