Center for History and New Media

Revision as of 18:39, 14 October 2004 by (Talk)

Since 1994, the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) has used digital media and computer technology to change the ways that people—scholars, students, and the general public—learn about and use the past. We do that by bringing together the most exciting and innovative digital media with the latest and best historical scholarship. We believe that serious scholarship and cutting edge multimedia can be combined to promote an inclusive and democratic understanding of the past as well as a broad historical literacy that fosters deep understanding of the most complex issues about the past and present. CHNM's work has been recognized with major awards from the American Historical Association and other national organizations, as well as with grants from the Sloan, Rockefeller, Gould, Delmas, and Kellogg foundations and the National Endowment for the Humanities, including a $2,000,000 challenge grant that provides the basis for an endowment that will allow us to achieve our goals. Many CHNM projects are undertaken in collaboration with the American Social History Project (ASHP)/Center for Media and Learning at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York (CUNY).
