20th Anniversary Conference

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, November 14-­15, 2014

To celebrate twenty years of work, we hosted a free two-day event at George Mason University’s Fairfax Campus that combined collaborative work, presentations and discussions, and unconference sessions.

RRCHNM Past & Present

Participants worked with Center projects, past and present, material gathered from the our records and collected from staff, and with current and former CHNMers. Following the style of THATCamp, the topics and forms of the projects were suggested and voted on by all those in attendance, and everyone actively participated in sessions throughout the day. Prizes — Amazon gift cards – were awarded for the best project, as voted on by conference participants.

The Future of Digital Humanities Centers and Digital History

The day featured two sessions of short talks by invited guests, each followed by extended discussion, and breakout sessions on topics chosen by the audience.
