2008 Cliopatria Award Nominations: BEST POST

Nominations are now closed. Winners will be posted here when they are announced at the AHA in January

Please submit, in comments below, your nominations for the best blog post by historians or about history published since 1 December 2007. [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: William Turkel, Jeremy Boggs, Lisa Spiro
[Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]
