    Digital History Fellowship
    (Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, 2020) Walters Cooper, LaQuanda; Swain, Greta; Dauterive, Jessica; Crossley, Laura; Odiorne, Andrew; Wilson, Lacey; Bratt, Jordan; Seal, Stephanie Anne; Fahringer, Alyssa Toby; Legg, Jannelle; McDivitt, Anne; Regan, Amanda; Hurwitz, Benjamin; Morton, Amanda; Roberts, Spencer
    This website served as a space for reflection from the graduate students in the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media's Digital History Fellowship program. Each new group of students contributed their stories and experiences, and provided a fresh look at digital history in graduate programs. The site also included each year's fellowship syllabus. First awarded in 2012, the Digital History Fellowship was funded by the Provost’s PhD Program Awards, and provided graduate students with stipends and an opportunity to undertake practicum courses in the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Students discussed previous projects completed by the Center to better understand how digital history has developed since 1994, while simultaneously offering new perspectives on present and future projects. They also worked within the Education, Public Projects, and Research divisions to learn new skills and contribute to current projects. Hosted at chnm.gmu.edu/courses/fellowship.

    Last American Pirate
    (Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, 2008) Kelly, Mills; Various
    The Last American Pirate was a scholarly hoax perpetrated by students in History 389 at George Mason University in the Fall 2008 semester as part of T. Mills Kelly's course on "Lying About the Past". During this hoax, a (nonexistent) student named Jane explored a (fake) local legend about a house where the (also nonexistent) "Last American Pirate" lived. The purpose of the hoax was to encourage people to think about how easily information takes on a life of its own online, ethics in the historical profession, and the role of digital media in popular culture.

    Magic, Illusion and Detection at the Turn of the Last Century
    (Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, 2004) O'Malley, Michael
    Website for a history course at George Mason University. This course explored two simultaneous tendencies in American life at the turn of the last century. On the one hand, the rise of industrialization made Americans fascinated with personal transformation--with self making, with economic mobility, and with the possibility of changing your place in life. This new, modern world highlighted the difference between the real and the fake. In an age of mass copies and new identities, how could you tell the genuine, honest man from the con man? As much as they loved magic and personal transformation, Americans of this era loved detection, and the wide range of new techniques--like fingerprints, mug shots, and criminology generally--designed to pin identity down. The course focused on this simultaneous, contradictory fascination with both self transformation and with stabilizing identity. The course made extensive use of this game-like website, which was designed to reproduce some of the ambiguities of historical research itself. Former URL: chnm.gmu.edu/courses/magic/.
