Dan Cohen Selected as Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America

For over twelve years, with the last five as director, Dan Cohen has offered the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) the benefit of his vision, strong leadership, and dedication. Now Dan will be departing to bring his energy and creativity to the Digital Public Library of America. Congratulations, Dan!

George Mason University’s Department of History and Art History and RRCHNM are preparing to launch a comprehensive search to fill Dan’s position, and we will post the job ad here shortly.

As always, the work of RRCHNM continues under the guidance of its senior directors and drawing on the rich experience of the staff who have sustained its innovation for nearly twenty years. We look forward to advancing our mission to use technology to preserve and present history digitally, transform scholarship across the humanities, and improve historical education and understanding.

There are many exciting ventures to come, and we are eager to share them with the digital humanities communities, as well as to continue our collaborations with Dan even if it’s across institutions!
