The first Asian History Carnival was hosted over at Frog in a Well – Japan (井の中の蛙) in October. Next week on the 12th of December, I will be hosting Asian History Carnival #2 right here at Muninn. This is a bimonthly carnival, appearing in even months on the same day as the number of the month (i.e. 2/2, 4/4, etc.).
Did you read any interesting weblog entries related to the history of Asia? Please send your nominations for the Asian History Carnival to me (konrad [at] lawson.net) please put something like “Asian History Carnival” in the subject) by midnight December 11th EST.
You may submit your own work or suggest good posts by someone else. You may submit multiple posts, and even multiple posts from a single group weblog, but not by the same blogger. The host, of course, is not bound by such restrictions, though we will attempt to provide as much geographical and chronological coverage as possible. The postings should be from October to December of this year. As always, host has final, absolute, and arbitrary authority with regard to inclusion, exclusion, scope, scale, format and presentation.
You do not have to be Asian, an historian, or a carny (you do have to be a blogger, at least once); all you have to do is blog about Asian history. Our definition of Asia, for the purposes of this carnival, is pretty much the same as that of the Association for Asian Studies: East Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, North Asia, Southeast Asia, Far East, Middle East, Near East, all regions are welcome. Our definition of history (and of good blogging), for the purposes of this carnival, is pretty much that of the History Carnival.
Also, if there is anyone interested in hosting the next Asian History Carnival, on February 2nd, 2006, please let me know.
