Beware the Calends of May!

Let me take away from your normal mourning over the death of Julius Caesar to remind you that I will host the next Carnivalesque, the Pagan Carnival of Early Modern History in all its forms, in the beginning of May. (The last was hosted by Natalie at Philobiblion.)

The parameters are generously defined: anything that happened in the world between 1450 and 1850 anywhere in the world. Or anything dealing with the study of the Early Modern Era. You can nominate entries (your own or others') to rhineriver [at] earthlink {dot} net.

I also have some special requests:
  • Non-Anglos in Colonial America
  • Noble Women
  • Encounters in the Portuguese and Spanish Empires
  • Proto-Industrialization
Is that a tall order? I hope not. How about one more: cartography. Here a map from Ortelius for inspiration.
