This article attempts to translate the fundamental components of professional scholarship-evidence, engagement with prior scholarship, and a scholarly argument-into forms that take advantage of the possibilities of electronic media.

Our study of two communities near the Mason-Dixon Line is designed to isolate the role of slavery in shaping societies of similar location and histories.
