2007 Cliopatria Awards Nominations: BEST POST

Nominations are now closed.
Look for the winners to be announced in January

Please submit, in comments below, your nominations for the best blog post by historians or about history published since 1 December 2006. [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 a URL for the post(s). You many nominate as many posts as you wish in this category, and you may nominate individual blogs or bloggers in other categories as well.

If you want ideas of blogs or writers to nominate, see the History Blogroll or past editions of the History Carnival or its related carnivals.

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: Rebecca Goetz, Paul Harvey, Elizabeth Klaczynski
[Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]

It's simply a very good example of intelligent comment on a matter which might be too short for a journal but nonetheless deserves attention.

Dear Cliopatria's Selection Committee,

Please consider Tenured Radical's very helpful post on applying for tenure-track jobs (url: She sparked a timely conversation, bringing up a number of subjective (and objective) factors considered by selection committees when reviewing materials (esp. cover letters).
