2009 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 2008. [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: Another Damned Medievalist, David Silbey, Miriam Burstein
[Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]

Rob MacDougall - 11/30/2009

Thanks for the nod to "Fantasy Vietnam", Jeremy. I'd also like to nominate:

Timothy Burke, "The Microhistorical Unknown"

Rachel Leow, "Curating the Oceans: The Future of Singapore's Past"

And (shamelessly) my own Angels and Octopodes.


Jonathan Dresner - 11/30/2009

Well, I'll throw two of my book reviews into the lists:
The Teahouse Fire: Painstaking, Frog in a Well: Japan, 2/11/2009.
Young Samurai Book One (of at least three): Harry Potter Bushido, Frog in a Well: Japan, 5/25/2009

Seriously, though, how about
Alan Baumler, Student Protests in Han China, Frog in a Well: China, 6/1/2009


Jeremy Young - 11/30/2009

Herewith three nominations for Best Post:

Cameron Blevins, Revisiting Charles Tilly: "How (and What) are Historians Doing?"

Rob MacDougall, Fantasy Vietnam (technically part of a series, but all the earlier "series" posts are over two years old, so I'm treating it as a stand-alone post)

Randall Stephens, Rebunking the Pilgrims?


Nick Poyntz - 11/29/2009

Finally I don't know if self-nominations are frowned upon, but my own post on the pros and cons of digital texts is a post I was relatively pleased with:
