The second Richard W. Lyman Award was given today to CHNM Director Roy Rosenzweig. Presented by the National Humanities Center, the Lyman Award recognizes the innovative use of information technology in humanistic scholarship and teaching.
“The Lyman Award continues to recognize scholarly achievement of unusual merit and impact,” said James J. O’Donnell, Georgetown University provost and chair of the Lyman Award selection committee. “Roy Rosenzweig’s work creatively uses new tools to reach broader audiences and to affect those audiences more deeply. In so doing, he sets an example for historians and for scholars more generally of critical engagement and effective communication.”
Dr Rosenzweig accepted the award during a ceremony and reception at the Library of Congress.
