A two-week institute for 25 historians of the United States, to be hosted by George Mason University’s Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, on advanced theory and application of new media tools for teaching and scholarship.

In the August 2014, twenty-three mid-career digital novices came to George Mason University (GMU) for the two-week intensive summer institute, Doing Digital History, organized by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM). Experts in their field of American history, these novices in digital methodologies were nervous, unsure of their own abilities, and intimidated by digital history. They all left as confident digital ambassadors with new skills, insights, and motivation to pursue digital work and become active participants in the growing community of digital humanists. Because of this success, and due to a continued need in the field, RRCHNM requests support from the National Endowment for the Humanities to organize Doing Digital History: 2016, a second Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities (IATDH), during the summer of 2016 to serve a cohort of twenty-five established, mid-career American history faculty and public historians.
