December’s host Michelle Ziegler, the history of science Santa, has put together a massive sleigh load of #histsci goodies at her blog Contagions in Giants’ Shoulders #54 to see you through the holiday season. So when you’ve polished off the goose and the plum pudding settle back with that box of pralines and enjoy the fruits of the best history of science bloggage from the last month. By the way Michelle is celebrating her third bloggaversary with this edition of Giants’ Shoulders so go on over and congratulate her on three years of excellent #histmed blogging.
Lisa Smith (@historybeagle) will take the history of science blog carnival into the New Year with Giants’ Shoulders #55 hosted on her The Sloane Letters Blog (that’s Sir Hans Sloane founder of the British Museum) on 16th January 2013. Always assuming that the apocalypse doesn’t take place next Friday. Submissions as always either direct to the host, or to Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars or to me here at RM.

History of aural medicine blogger Jai Virdi has put together the fiftieth edition of the history of science blog carnival The Giants’ Shoulders and a real humdinger it is too. If you want to read the very best in #histsci #histmed and #histtech bloggage from the last month then hurry on over to Jai’s blog From the Hands of Quacks and get stuck in but take plenty of time with you because she created a cornucopia of history of science goodness.
The Giants’ Shoulders #51 will be hosted by historian of geology David Bressan at his History of Geology blog at Scientific American Blogs on the 16th September 2012. Submissions either direct to the host or to me here at The Renaissance Mathematicus or to Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars by the 15th of September at the latest.
The future of The Giants’ Shoulders is secured for the rest of this year and into the next with Richard Carter hosting at his Friends of Darwin blog in October, Scicurious hosting at her blog at Scientific American in November, Michelle Ziegler hosting at Contagions in December and Lisa Smith The History Beagle bringing in the New Year in January. However if it is to continue The Giants’ Shoulders will need new hosts in the months that follow so if you blog about the history of science or technology or medicine or have a blog and are just interested in these fields you too could host a carnival. If you are willing and able then please contact me, Thony C, here at The Renaissance Mathematicus and let see if we can fill the other half-century!
