Heather Gonyeau (BA History 2016) has aspired to curate an exhibition since starting at Mason. With the support of the Department of History and Art History and the Office of Creative Research and Scholarship, she accomplished her goal with Voices of Resistance, on view at the Mason Hall atrium from September 10-28th. The exhibition brings together artwork from Brazil, Argentina and Chile as examples of protest and resistance to oppressive political regimes of the 1970s.
George Mason University, together with the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR), will convene the 9th Annual CHINA Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections on the evening of Monday, October 5, 2015.
This year, the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) celebrated 20 years of focusing on the past in a radically new way. Through digital technology, the center has worked to bring the public into the experience of history, allowing people to not only learn, research, and organize the stories of the past, but to contribute their own voices to how those stories will be told into the future.
