2010 Cliopatria Award Nominations: Best Series of Posts
Look for the announcement of the winners in January at Cliopatria
Please submit, in comments below, your nominations for the best series of posts on a history blog or history topic since 1 December 2009. [registration not required to post nominations, but the usual rules of civility and conduct still apply] Nominations will be accepted from November 1st through 30th.
Please include URLs for posts you are nominating (not just a URL for the blog). You may nominate as many posts or series as you wish in this category, and you may nominate individual blogs or bloggers in other categories as well.
Bloggers do not need to be academic historians. If you're not sure whether a blog or blogger qualifies as"history," nominate them anyway and the judges will make a final determination. If you have questions, feel free to contact Ralph Luker or leave a comment here.
Judging Committee: David Silbey (Chair), Ian Lekus, and Rick Herrera.
[Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]

I nominate the series of entries Jamie Malanowski has been writing for The New York Times Disunion Blog, in which he is telling the story of the secession winter of 1860-1 as though it were unfolding in present time:

I have already nominated The Two Nerdy History girls for best group blog. Now I would like to nominate my two favorite posts that were linked together by subject. These two show why I love this blog so much. Thank you for your consideration.

Paul Barford's ongoing series (starting in September 2010 and continuing inter alia to at least today) on the sale, find, and other issues associated with the Crosby Garrett helmet are very readable and often thought provoking ...
Thomas Peace - 11/21/2010

Jonathan Dresner - 11/17/2010
I've been reviewing Japanese historical fiction series for children:
"Judge Ooka's Sidekick" the Hooblers' samurai detective series for children:
3 July 2010 Judge Ooka’s Sidekick: A Samurai Never Fears Death and The Sword that Cut the Burning Grass by Dorothy & Thomas Hoobler
13 July 2010 Judge Ooka’s Sidekick, part two: The Ghost In the Tokaido Inn and In Darkness, Death
Young Samurai series by Chris Bradford:
25 May 2009. "Young Samurai Book One (of at least three): Harry Potter Bushido"
30 August 2010. "Young Samurai: The Way of the Sword: Ancient Culture, Modern Politics"
I realize that the first Young Samurai post predates the Dec'09-Nov'10 period: the judges may choose to discount it as they see fit, but I'm including it here because it is a part of the complete series.

Not sure if multiple blogs can be nominated... but if so, this example of a "relay" multiple post where one blogger starts and another then picks up the baton is pretty superb:
Rob - 11/4/2010
There were at least two great series of posts from the blog settler colonial studies. The first, and best, was Ed Cavanagh's historical observations on the Ngapuhi sovereignty case (and his subsequent discussion with a Maori lawyer): http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/01/20/ngapuhi-faction-claims-extra-sovereign-maori-capacity/ http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/05/10/ngapuhi-case-begins/ http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/07/23/ngapuhi-meet-with-the-un-declaration-of-independence-plot-thickens/ http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/08/03/joshua-hitchcock-sets-the-record-straight-regarding-ngapuhi-sovereignty-and-legal-pluralism-in-new-zealand/ . The other was Ed's coverage of the Eugene Terre'Blanche case (he was covering ETB for weeks before his murder) http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/02/22/the-return-of-eugene-terreblanche-and-his-awb-youtube/ http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/04/05/terreblanche-hacked-to-death-with-panga/ http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/04/28/terreblanche-the-media-and-ironies/ http://settlercolonialstudies.org/2010/06/11/die-gelofte-volk-republikeine-awb-breakaway-group/
