The Dispersal of History of Science Blog Posts: Giants’ Shoulders #43

January 17, 2012

Our second favourite doggie, Sascha is naturally numero uno, Michael Barton, Darwins Bulldog, has posted the 43rd edition of the history of science blog carnival On The Shoulders of Giants at The Dispersal of Darwin and a bumper edition it is too. So go on over to Michael’s home patch and peruse the best of histsci blogging from the last month.

Giants’ Shoulders #44 will be hosted by yours truly here at the Renaissance Mathematicus on 16th February 2012. Submissions as always by 15th February either direct to your genial host, that’s me of course, or to the blog carnival website.

As always we are desperately searching for hosts for the rest of 2012 so if you have a blog and want to host the best blog carnival in the blogosphere the contact either Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars or Thony C at The Renaissance Mathematicus.

The Giant’s Shoulders #43 is out — People, places & things!

January 17, 2012

The 43rd edition of the history of science blog carnival The Giant’s Shoulders is out today over at  The Dispersal of Darwin!  Go there to read about the people, places and things of the history of science, including:

  • Victorian poet scientists
  • Legends of “cursed” glaciers
  • A pictorial history of the mysterious wolverine (the animal, not the X-Man!)

Many thanks to Michael Barton for putting together an excellent and intriguing edition of the carnival!

We’re still desperately looking for future hosts of the carnival for the next few months!  I’m hoping, now that the holidays are behind us, that people will step forward to volunteer to host.  Please drop us a comment if you’re interested and/or send an email to one of the carnival managers.

Neglected Duties: Giants’ Shoulders #42 & Giants’ Shoulders #43

January 10, 2012

I’m afraid that in the last month I have rather neglected my duties as junior co-manager, chief cook and bottle washer of The Giants’ Shoulders the monthly history of science blog carnival. This is a somewhat belated attempt to make good.

Giants’ Shoulders #42 appeared punctually and in full glory edited by Darin Hayton at the PACHS blog on 16th December 2011 and if by chance you still haven’t read it you should get on over there now and enjoy a months worth of first class history of science blogging.

Giants’ Shoulders #43 will be hosted by our own very favourite bull doggie, Michael Barton Darwin’s Bulldog, at that wonderful repository of all things Darwinian The Dispersal of Darwin on 16th January 2012. Submission as usual either direct to the host or to the blog carnival’s website by 15th January 2012.

As always Giants’ Shoulders is desperately seeking hosts for the next months so if you are seeking fame and glory this is your chance. You just need to contact either Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars or myself that’s Thony C at The Renaissance Mathematicus.
