About the Site
This site is a collection of material about projects created by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University in the first twenty years of its existence, 1994-2014.
This material has been gathered and made public to mark the Center's anniversary, and to provide resources for the first day of the RRCHNM 20th Anniversary Conference (#rrchnm20), on November 14, 2014, which is devoted to hands-on work on the pasts of digital history. Our aim is to offer insight on the process of creating digital history, and to highlight the roles of a range of staff and collaborators, across twenty years of changing structures, practices, concerns, hardware, and software.
The collection includes 67 of the 149 projects undertaken by the Center, as of November 2014. Not included are twelve current projects, and small contract and web design projects. Most of the documents are grant proposals and reports. We have removed the detailed budgets from these proposals, as well as letters of support. The site also includes information on the just over 150 people who worked at the Center during its first twenty years.
The site is open to contributions of material from staff and collaborators, as well as the users and audiences of the Center's projects. We'd love to gather images of the Center's staff and locations, and experiences using Center projects or collaborating with Center staff.
