The May Scientiae Blog Carnival will be held at Endless Possibilities V2.0 over on Nature Network on or about the 1st of May.
I've always been intrigued by timecapsules. Those funny things that people bury under trees, in new buildings, in the ground, whenever something notable is happening. They contain photos, stuff that is soon to be an artifact, letters and other such timely reminders of the present day.
As I'm running a little short of time for a theme for the May Scientiae carnival, I'd like to propose "A Snapshot" as a theme. Create a blog time capsule for yourself that will say Spring 2009 when you look back on it in a couple of years.
You can interpret this in many ways. It could just be a series of pictures that describes your research or life this spring, or it could be an anecdote or moment that is memorable. It could be a snapshot of how your research is going, how your job search is progressing or just how your getting on.
And as I'm running short of time, I'll also accept general submissions on anything related to the themes of this carnival:
This is a blog carnival that compiles posts written about the broad topic of "women in STEM," (STEM=science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and may include posts:
stories about being a woman in STEM
exploring gender and STEM academia
living the scientific academic life as well as the rest of life
discussing how race, sexuality, age, nationality and other social categories intersect with the experience of being a woman in STEM
sharing feminist perspectives on science and technology
exploring feminist science and technology studies
Both men and women (and anyone in-between) are welcome to contribute to the carnival as long as the topics are relevant and respectful.Submissions from any and all parts of the blogging world welcome. Please email a permalink to your submission to scientiaecarnival [a] gmail [dt] com. More details concerning submission can be found here. I will not be using the technorati tag to find posts so please email! Deadline: Midnight 30th of April PDT.
Looking forward to reading the submissions!
