Asian History Carnival approaching – submissions needed!

The Frog in a Well group Asian history blog (unaffiliated, but good name) is hosting the third Asian History Carnival on March 5rd and is still short on good submissions. If you are a blogger who has written anything since the previous carnival on December 12th or a blog reader who has spotted something that they think would make a good submission, either email it directly to Jonathan Dresner or use this handy web form for submission. Interested bloggers are also invited to pass along this request to their own readers.

What sort of material is Jonathan looking for? I’ll just quote his description.

When recommending postings for inclusion in the carnival you may submit your own work or suggest good posts by someone else. You may submit multiple posts, 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. Carnivals will be limited to posts written since the previous installment. As with most such carnivals, each 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.

Those who are still unsure about what sort of material is appropriate, or just want to read something about history (Nice thing about history posts-unlike current events commentary, they don’t go out of date!) should check out the previous two roundups.

Carnival #2 – Muninn, Decmeber 12, 2005
Carnival #1 – Frog in a Well – Japan, October 10th, 2005

Please try and send in submissions by March 4 so that Jonathan has time to collate them and organize the post.
