History Carnival No 4

History Carnival No 4 is up now at Blogenspiel, which is written by “Another Damned Medievalist”. (She doesn’t explain that term, but it sounds like it has a history of its own.)

The framework is histographical, looking at what history is and should be — including a student who finds that her Women’s History course is almost too relevant — but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t also point you to some great stories. These include ritual transvestism and an unmissable account of a 17th-century nun, a pillar of learning and knowledge. Don’t miss it!

(Declaration of interest: This humble booklover makes a small contribution, which you may have already read on Blogcritics.)
