An appeal for posts from The Giant’s Shoulders

UPDATE: The June carnival will be hosted by thoughts from gut bacteria instead. Click here to see how to submit.


The history of science blog carnival The Giant’s Shoulders wants more posts submitted:

Over the past couple of months, the number of submissions to The Giant’s Shoulders has been a little light.  Entries have been great, but it would be nice if we ended up with a few more of them, at least if we want to keep TGS as a monthly carnival.

Up until now, I’ve had the (unofficial and unannounced) policy that authors should submit their own posts to the carnival, but there seems to be no reason why you could nominate other posts that are out there on the history of science.  I know that there’s a lot out there, but relatively few seem to get into the carnival these days!   Keep in mind that there’s no requirement that posts be massive, erudite essays (though we like those, as well); any post which highlights interesting and significant events/people/discoveries in the history of science is welcome.

I will be hosting the carnival here in August. The next one will be hosted at The Secret of Newton, and the deadline is June 15th. Submit your entries here or email them to thesecretofnewton AT gmail DOT com.

  1. just a heads up… The Secret of Newton is a no show, so I’m going to be hosting instead. I’ll make a post about it soon.
