History Carnival 147



Happy Canada Day and welcome to History Carnival 147!  I’m excited to host this month and help showcase some of June’s best history blog posts. 

This month we have a number of fantastic posts that highlight the sheer breadth of freely available, intelligent, and accessible historical blogging.

These first two posts were some of the most thought-provoking entries I read this month.  In Seeing And Challenging Your Assumptions (Isn’t Easy), Joanne Bailey reflects on her own historical practice and the challenges in confronting underlying assumptions and reframing evidence.  Matt Houlbrook, inspired by Bailey’s post, picks up on this theme of self-reflection and self-critique in his On Being A One Trick Historian.  “Habits,” he writes, “shape and constrain how we work as historians.”  And, while useful, can “get in the way of thinking imaginatively, creatively, and differently about the past.” 

This past month, a very large number of posts focused on exploring the past to explain or shed light on the present.  At NOTCHES, Rebecca Davis explores the Religious and Reproductive Politics in the United States since WWII and highlights the often overlooked role of religious activism in defense of women’s reproductive rights.  In Obergefell Made History, and History Made Obergefell, Lara Freidenfeld emphasizes the role of sophisticated historical research in the recent Obergefell v. Hodges decision.  Likewise, Jarret Ruminski explores the history and meaning of the Confederate flag in the wake of the recent South Carolina shootings in the Twilight of the Confederate Flag.

Each of the previous posts discusses somewhat the struggle scholars have with sources and how we approach or use them.  Switching gears a bit, these next posts highlight historical practice in an increasingly digital world.  Sarah J. Young looks at sources, historical memory, and the effect of digitization in Historical Memory of the Gulag.  At The Suffrage Postcard Project, Kristin Allukian and Ana Stevenson use digital humanities approaches to “understand how feminist digital humanities practices engender new historical narratives of parenthood – motherhood and fatherhood, broadly defined – in early-twentieth-century suffrage postcards.”  Alana Farrell’s guest post at the Medical Heritage Library, The Censors of the Royal College of Physicians, calls attention to the recent digitization and uploading of several 19th century medical works.

Last, I couldn’t host the History Carnival at Panacea without some early modern medical history!  Hugh Aldersey-Williams’ A Bestiary of Sir Thomas Browne is a fascinating post on Browne’s natural philosophy work and his correction of various “vulgar errors” such as belief in the existence of unicorns and basilisks.  At the Sloane Letters Blog, Matthew DeCloedt relates an interesting story about Sir Hans Sloane, slander, and libel in Bad Blood and Indecent Expressions.  In a fun post at the Recipes Project, Annie Gray and Alun Withey recreate historical recipes in the Curative Power of Beer and Rhubarb.  While Sara Read and Jennifer Evans close Early Modern Medicine for the summer with a post on Inconvenient Incontinence in post-partum women.

Hope you’ve enjoyed a quick journey through June’s history blog posts!  As always, if you’d like to be involved in the monthly History Carnival you can email or DM the admin at the addresses found here.

Cheers!

I would like to advise people on how i got rid of my herpes.i was reading a comment on the internet,and i saw a testimony posted by a woman from island that she got rid of her herpes with the help of great Dr christopherhobbs. so i was so happy when i saw that post,that his herbal medication is free.i quickly collect the herbal doctor email and i email him within 5hours he respond to my email.And then i explain things to him he told me not to worry that every thing will be fine which i never belived it would come to pass.He only request for little money that he will use to buy the items for the preparation of the herbal medicine, of which i sent to him because i was eager to get cured,after some days he told me that the herbal medicine is ready for me,that i should send him my address that he want to sent it to me DHL courier service and Within few days that was how i got the herbal medication.and i use it as i was told to. After 2 weeks and few days i found out that my herpes was no more.Then i had to introduce him to other set of people suffering from the same deadly disease and they also testified.

  8. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,fibromyalgia,Get Your Ex Back,Als,SYPHILLIS. You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....

  9. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, ​​I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house. Dr. Itua can also cure the following diseases ... Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis B, Inflammatory Liver, Diabetis, Fribroid, recover your ex. You can contact him by email or whatsapp, @ .. drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com, phone number .. + 2348149277967 .. He is a good doctor, talk to him kindly. I'm sure he will also listen to you.
