Doing DH 2016

The Doing Digital History team is pleased announce that participants for the 2016 Summer Institute have been selected. This year we received 69 applications from highly qualified individuals working at a diverse range of colleges, universities, and public institutions. This significant interest demonstrates a high-demand for training for digital novices.

We are excited to welcome 25 mid-career historians from across the country to the ten-day summer institute from at George Mason University’s Arlington campus on July 11-22, 2016.

This institute is once again generously sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Office of Digital Humanities and organized by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. For information on the previous institute, please visit Doing Digital History: 2014
