Consolation Prize: a new podcast about American consuls

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University is pleased to announce Season 1 of a new podcast, Consolation Prize, about consuls and their world. This narrative podcast will investigate American consuls in the late eighteenth and the nineteenth century. There will be mayhem! romance! intrigue! exotic animals! and much more, when we explore how consuls interacted with Americans who traveled the world. We'll also tackle questions of identity, race, diplomacy, and politics, as we situate these consuls in their larger context.

Online archival research software from Roy Rosenzweig Center for History

If you were planning to do archival research over the next few weeks or months and your trip has been cancelled or your archive has closed, we may have a solution for you. Tropy, a piece of free software developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University (the same folks who built Zotero), has the capability to allow you to send research photos to others and include information about them such as where they came from and what they are.
