History Carnival #6: Conference Program

The History Carnival is a floating twice-monthly roundup of the best discussions of history in the blogosphere (that we can find, either by nomination or incessant surfing). Like many blog roundups -- Tangled Bank, Skeptics Circle, Philosopher's Carnival -- it sometimes takes fanciful forms, as the rotating, volunteer hosts have a free hand in organizing and presenting the information. If you have written or know of a post you think could be included in the next History Carnival (1 May), the host will be Hugo Holbling at Studi Galileiani, email: hugo AT galilean-library DOT org.
Speeches (opening and closing) will be in the Droning Auditorium. Panels will be in the Alumni Donor Memorial Classroom. Poster Session will be in the big Theory Hall; Mini-Panels will meet on the left end of Theory Hall, unless the participants refuse to appear together. Papal Working Group will meet in secret. Titles are approximate (as are names, in some cases) and subject to change without notice; liberties have been taken, mostly for the sake of clarity. The vast majority of conferees who did not submit abstracts in advance are hereby ordered to attend anyway, by the power vested in me....

Caleb McDaniel - 4/18/2005

... for a Great Carnival!

Julie A Hofmann - 4/16/2005

Damn! This is like looking at my "Reviews" folder in my e-mail -- how is it that so much gets written that I haven't read? I love the organization, too!

Jason Kuznicki - 4/15/2005

No, no... My fault entirely. I e-mailed from your comment, assuming that it was headed for you. Instead it went to HaloScan's bit bucket, and I only noticed it this morning.

Sharon Howard - 4/15/2005

And Great work. Many thanks for all your effort!

Jonathan Dresner - 4/15/2005

I can't believe I forgot about that one (I even commented on it): You're in the Papal group.

Jason Kuznicki - 4/15/2005

Thanks... Though this one fits well in the "Frauds" panel as well as in the "Papal Working Group."

Jonathan Dresner - 4/15/2005

Send it, or post it here: I'll add an "individual papers session" for late arrivals.

Jason Kuznicki - 4/15/2005

I seem to have mis-sent my nomination, but in any event I wasn't terribly proud of the post. I'll be sure to have something suitably historical the next time around.
