    TITLE: The Next Generation of Digital Scholarship: An Experiment in Form
    Registration is free, just see: http://www.neh.gov/news/ehumanities.html

    DESCRIPTION: The use of online resources has exploded in recent years.
    Students and scholars routinely turn to the web for primary documents,
    reference works, and the latest reviews. But we have not yet forged a new
    form of scholarly communication and argumentation for the digital
    environment. In this talk, Ayers and Thomas present a prototype of a journal
    article designed to take advantage of the possibilities of the web while
    addressing some of the limitations of that context.

    BIO: Will Thomas is the Director of the Virginia Center for Digital History
    and Research Assistant Professor of History at the University of Virginia.
    He teaches the history of Virginia since 1865 and is the author of Lawyering
    for the Railroad: Business, Law, and Power in the New South (LSU, 1999). He
    also served as the co-author and assistant producer of The Ground Beneath
    Our Feet: Virginia's History Since the Civil War, an Emmy-nominated series
    on the history of Virginia for public television.

    BIO: Edward L. Ayers is the Hugh P. Kelly professor of history at the
    University of Virginia. Ayers has written extensively on Southern history
    and race relations. His books include All Over the Map: Rethinking American
    Regions and The Promise of the New South: Life After Reconstruction. He is

    Virginia. Ayers has received a number of grants and fellowships, including a
    Fulbright. Ayers received a bachelor's degree from the University of
