Doing Digital History: An Institute for Mid-Career American Historians

A two-week institute for 25 historians, to be hosted by George Mason University's Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, on advanced theory and application of new media tools for teaching and scholarship.

Historians, as a group, are reluctant and anxious to engage in digital research methods and to integrate those methods and accompanying tools into their teaching. Taking a cue from the most recent Ithaka S+R report, "Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Historians," the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University (RRCHNM) requests support from the National Endowment for the Humanities to host a two-week institute in 2014 to fill a much-needed gap for historians who need instruction and a professional learning community to engage with new media methods and tools, and to push forward with work on their own digital projects. In the spirit of capitalizing on our own expertise and the significant resources in the field, we will solicit our participants from the broad field of American History, without respect to subfield specialty.
