University Seminar: Toward a Democratic Digital Past

Home > News & Updates > University Seminar: Toward a Democratic Digital Past

March 5, 2007. On March 15, please join CCNMTL and Roy Rosenzweig of George Mason University for a discussion on digital history projects in the next University Seminar for New Media Teaching and Learning. Rosenzweig is Mark and Barbara Fried Professor of History & New Media at George Mason University, where he also heads the Center for History and New Media (CHNM). Since 1994, CHNM has used digital media and computer technology to democratize history-to incorporate multiple voices, reach diverse audiences, and encourage popular participation in presenting and preserving the past. The CHNM sponsors more than two dozen digital history projects and offers free tools and resources to historians. Rosenzweig is the author, most recently, with co-author Daniel Cohen, of Digital History: A Guide to Gathering, Preserving, and Presenting the Past on the Web.

Rosenzweig will reflect on some of the work of the Center for History and New Media as the basis for talking about the possibilities and problems of achieving a democratic digital past.
