Donation Drive to Rename Center for History and New Media after Roy Rosenzweig Reaches $950,000
The Center for History and New Media at George Mason University announced this evening that the fundraising drive to rename the CHNM after its late founder, Roy Rosenzweig, has reached $950,000, only $50,000 short of the $1 million goal.
Jack Censer, Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at George Mason University, and Gary Kornblith, professor of history at Oberlin College, made the announcement at a reception to celebrate the posthumous release of Dr. Rosenzweig’s Clio Wired: The Future of the Past in the Digital Age at the AHA in Boston.
The Center for History and New Media “represented [Roy's] vision in all of its generosity and his effort to make history freely, openly, and radically available to the demos,” said Dr. Kornblith.
